I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2010 with degrees in broadcasting and Spanish translation and interpretation. Since then I’ve worked as a freelance videographer and as a photographer for the Buckle.
Since graduating, I’ve been looking for ways to get involved in the community. I’d have to say to most meaningful involvement was as a vendor at MarketPlace on 24th. My wife, Shawnee, and I set up shop every Saturday to sell paintings, jewelry and crafts. From weekend shoppers to my fellow vendors, I met all kinds of people from Kearney and beyond, and the relationships I created have deeply affected me.
I feel like Kearney and the rest of Buffalo County have so much to offer in the way of friendship and family, and I want to be a part of something that fosters that feeling and helps ensure the community is safe and healthy in the future. As marketing coordinator of Community Partners, my goal is not only to get our name out there and get people involved, but to remind everyone of the strength a well-oiled community has. I’m looking forward to some great experiences and events in Buffalo County’s future!
