Graduate of the class of 2014 from Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH. I discovered my love for filmmaking, editing, and producing early in my college career. I originally joined the NCTV team as a producing intern to further my education in the field and have come back to NCTV as an Assistant Director turned Media Coordinator.
The first video I filmed & edited for NCTV was the Newport Prom. It was a great experience in introducing me to new equipment and programs as well as multi-camera work. I am now in charge of the documentary series Crisis Mode: Activated in which we take an exclusive look into the lives of those in recovery from addiction.
I look forward to shooting more videos and working with an amazing team!
As a senior in high school, I see plenty of my peers worried about their futures. As for me, my passions for video editing, recording and storyboarding were first discovered as a junior in high school. Watching YouTube helped me get through times of hardship which inevitably led to me striving to help others using the same forms of media as YouTube. My venture started while attending Winnisquam High School where I had decided to take a class at the “HUOT” center nearby. This class helped drive me to find what I truly enjoy, video editing. The year following, I moved back to my home town of Newport. Newport does not offer such such classes but helped me stumble upon NCTV. Although a bit crazy at times, NCTV helps me learn more about filming and editing in a practical setting at a steady pace. I find the job as an intern producer to be very satisfying.
Newport High school graduate of 2016, I began working at NCTV in the middle of my Senior Year. I soon fell in love with filming and editing. Throughout my time here I have filmed and edited the Peeps Diorama Challenge, a campaign video for Linda Wadensten, The Red Star Twirlers, The 2016 Winter Carnival Queen Pageant, and am currently editing the 2016 Prom.
My time working at NCTV has given me a wonderful experience with wonderful co-workers. In fall I will begin college at Keene State, though I intend to return to NCTV during the summers. Working at NCTV has also inspired me to minor in Film Studies in order to further my experience with cameras, filming and editing.

When I was eleven years old, my parents gave me an old video camera for Christmas. I immediately took it out and created the first video I ever made. I then sent it to NCTV, and when I saw it on cable television, I knew that producing is what I wanted to study as a career. Afterwards, I began to volunteer for the school board meetings. Even though filming a live meeting was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, I came to love it nonetheless! Finally in January of 2013, I was given the opportunity to work at NCTV as the Junior Producer. I was so excited! Of course I accepted the position, and I have loved every moment I’ve had here.
Newport High School is so fortunate to have something like NCTV. Working here has giving me experience that is so unique compared to other kids’ my age. I have been able to express my creativity, lead my own projects, and learn how to organize and manage a television studio. The interns from Colby-Sawyer have given me tons of tips that have contributed to my editing abilities.
