Dedication of Christ the King Chapel at Christendom College – EWTN Video

I was on the film crew for EWTN for the dedication of my college’s new chapel.

During the event I was also an on-the-ground problem solver, fixing cameras when they lost connection and helping the sound technicians to properly capture good audio for the video.

Catholic NC TV – Channel

This channel includes Catholic educational content with a seminarian friend and the director of religious education of our diocese. Filmed and edited by yours truly, the group made videos informing people about the faith. I also made daily podcasts and recordings of Lenten and Advent meditations, which were posted on all media platforms available, even in text format on Instagram and Facebook. This page was active from 2018 to 2021, starting when I was 15, giving me extensive practice editing.
