My passion in life is a good camera and a funny joke, ideally when they're combined. William & Mary has allowed me to find a LOT to do with that passion, as evidenced by these photos! 1. I'm a video assistant for @wmtribefootball, which means I film their practices and games - I get some pretty exclusive views like this one, which is up at the highest point of Zable where I film sideline views! I'm a huge sports fan (let me know if you're as distraught as I am about Daniel Murphy being traded to the Cubs) so doing this makes me extremely happy. 2. I make a podcast, "I Did What?" with one of my best friends @rosierubenstein - we talk about embarrassing stories and a lot of it is us making fun of each other. It's awesome to have a creative outlet that isn't related to a job or school or anything, because it's just for us and our buddies! But, still go subscribe on iTunes. I also made a short documentary about it for one of my film classes, and you can see it! It's called "Thanks for Listening" on YouTube. 3. Particularly over the past summer, I have really found a passion for photography. I knew I loved videography, but after I bought myself a Canon M100, a mirrorless camera that's also available for rent at the Reeder Media Center, I really got into it! This picture is of a dog named Baxter, and dogs tend to be my favorite subjects. 4 & 5. Something I've been working with since sophomore year is the @globalfilmfest! Put on every year in February, I volunteered sophomore year (4) and interned for the workshops and panels my junior year! I also participated in 24 Speed this year, and my group and I won the Jury Award and Audience Award for best student film! You can also watch that film on YouTube, "Gloria: Mime Unknown" (shoutout @sophiabrodnax, our most perfect mime) #5 is a picture of all of us at the Festival's closing reception, where we got to rub elbows with some amazing W&M alums who are doing really cool stuff in the media world. Fingers crossed I get to be one of them some day! - @iamthecampion
