I've been working in the television broadcasting industry since 1997. I began at Rogers Television as a grade 12 coop student in '97-98 logging well over 1000 hours that school year. I graduated in June to continue working ($) for Rogers as a Master Control operator and paid production/tech op. I was also employed by the promotions department, producing and (AVID) editing promos, show openers and special requests for Rogers in Kitchener and London. In 1999 I was hired at CKCO (CTV) in Kitchener as a tech op. I began editing news, doing studio cam, and post production. I quickly progressed to shooting news (ENG) (I LOVE SHOOTING, not necessarily news, tho) and was trained to operate the microwave van. Today I an one of the two official 'Live-Eye guys'.
Just 'cause I got an awesome career doesn't mean I'm this old boring dude. No no, ....
