My Emmy experience has been one of change. I’ve been working in the Chicago news scene since 2004, first primarily as an online journalist. I was lucky enough to win several Emmys with that work, and I’m really proud of it.
A few years back, I started on a quest to become a better video editor. It took some time, but I eventually worked my way into editing special reports and investigative stories at WMAQ. This year was the first time I entered in the Craft-Editor category, and to win was really exciting. If you watch my speech, I’m sure you can tell. It’s a great feeling to have your peers recognize your work as worthy of an Emmy. Especially when that work represents a new chapter in your career.
