At Biola since:

I came to Biola as a student in 2004, started working for IMC in 2006, and I’ve been full-time since December 2007.

Describe your job:

I handle production of all of Biola’s marketing video. Some days that means going out and shooting stuff, other days it’s lots of editing, other days it’s pre-production for larger shoots.

Five most influential books, movies or songs:

  1. The Lord of the Rings movies (extended editions, of course)
  2. City Lights by Charlie Chaplin (film)
  3. Dirty Jobs (TV)
  4. Sight, Sound, Motion (book)
  5. "Chem 6A" by Switchfoot (song)

What inspires me?

Natural beauty. Nothing beats an incredible vista, especially if you’ve hiked miles up a mountain to get there.

The best thing about my job is:

Anytime we do a live broadcast of something....It's always a great thrill to know that there's only a very fine line between grand success and utter failure. I thrive on that sort of insanity.

If I could be any place in the world right now, where would it be?


If I could pick any actor to play me in the movie of my life, who would it be?

Tough question. Maybe somebody like a Jimmy Fallon. He’s kind of a nerd, yet also simultaneously cool & funny, like I (delusionally) think I am.

Top Three Favorite Projects I’ve worked on at Biola:

  1. The 100 percent campaign (I love telling stories)
  2. The new version of the campus tour that will launch in 2010 (I walked around campus for a week with a 50-pound camera strapped to me)
  3. The “Does God Exist?” debate (Exploring new territory with tens of thousands of people watching)
