The struggle is real.
With summer around the corner I thought it would be a great time for a career update. It feels good to be as busy as I am. I finished my 4th season with the Calgary Flames. There were dozens of projects to work on and I was able to establish myself in the technical director/switching role. It gave me the opportunity to do the role for Shaw TV and ProShow as well.
Speaking of Shaw TV, It was a pleasure to work on what would be the final season of the WHL on Shaw as the big market stations are shutting down and the coverage is up in the air. April and May saw us traveling between Medicine Hat and Lethbridge and back for the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the playoffs.
I'm happy to report I've taken a position with the Okotoks Dawgs of the Western Major Baseball League. I'll be helping with their in game presentation.
Over the course of the last 3 years I've been working towards a certificate in DSLR Video Production from SAIT. I've finished 6 of the 8 classes, all of the video portion. There's a couple audio related classes to take in the fall and winter before I'm done. As far as I've come over the last few years, being certified will feel pretty great.
The future is looking pretty bright. July will see me working my 4th Calgary Stampede, shooting the Grandstand Show. This September, on top of my usual involvement with Beakerhead, I'll be a presenter! I'm part of a team looking to turn Loft 112 in the East Village into 'Mars 112', a futuristic Mars Colony. We're using environmental storytelling to tell the tale of a lonely astronaut counting down the days until she's joined by the first colonists from Earth.
I look forward to sharing all of these amazing projects with you guys over the next few months.
