Just barely into the new year, my co-producer and I decided to start the year off on the right foot and accomplish something we have been trying to do since InkTV began: cross-shooting.
This video follows me through my day, to show what a normal day looks like for me. It was a final project for my journalism class. This is me, and the people I see through my typical day.
For this assignment, I was instructed to create a photo slideshow accompanied by an interview of someone in Monmouth County with an interesting story. My first thought was to interview my father on his new business: an athletic facility. In doing this project, I discovered so much about my father and his business.

I couldn’t be happier or prouder producing and anchoring InkTV.
