I currently work for a company called Game Creek Video.

I was hired mid-2013 in the companies new ‘Apprentice Program’. In addition to learning the basics of the broadcast industry such as equipment maintenance, cable construction and industry conventions, we were schooled in the full technical aspects of the trucks and how to run them as an EIC (Engineer in Charge). Since those days in the companies shop in Hudson NH, I have worked alongside the brilliant staff here at Game Creek to Engineer events such as the 2103 Stanley Cup, 2013 World Series, Super Bowl XLVII and NASCAR on Fox. Broadcast Engineering is a field that is constantly evolving and brimming with exciting technical innovation. Being an integral part of this industry along with working along side the most highly regarded broadcast engineers and TV crews in the country has been a very rewarding and fulfilling experience.

Alongside the audio team at Oracle, I was responsible for creating sound effects, music editorial, dialog editorial, as well as foley effects for shows such as Nickelodeon’s Penguins of Madagascar and E!’s Ice Loves Coco.
