Hello, everyone! I am an aerospace engineering major with a love for all things writing, public speaking, radio, and music. People usually ask me why am I involved in such diverse fields, but my answer is simple — Life is too short to not pursue what (all) you love! I have been writing for quite a few publications such as The Elite Daily, Medium.com, The News Record, and the others. I do have a radio show as well — Bowled Over Bollywood – which is typically a talk show that offers juicy celeb gossip, movie trivia, and awesome Bollywood music! I handle everything to do with the Bearcast website so if you ever wish to get involved and write for us about literally anything — news, sports, movies, music, fashion, campus news, world, student affairs, et al — I am the person you gotta reach out to! #StayAwesome

I manage Bearcast’s video elements and our coverage teams. I work primarily in studio production and have a background in film. I love movies, tv shows, podcasts, and almost anything pop culture. I’m super nerdy! I spend most of my time playing video games or D&D. Eventually, I hope to be a studio engineer or director somewhere in LA and have a nerd/cooking podcast on the side. Feel free to reach out at any time!

I am a fourth year majoring in Electronic Media with a minor in Political Science and a certificate in Broadcast Writing. This is my second year as a director with Bearcast, and I have been involved since my freshman year. I started out by sharing a radio show with Jenna Adkins, where we played only music from the late 90’s and early 2000’s, and it was a blast. From there, I really started getting interested in the idea of Bearcast having a TV station in addition to the radio station, so that’s what we are currently working on! This year, we are having a monthly broadcast from our TV Studio in Mary Emery- so come hang! I think Bearcast is one of the most fun ways to get involved on campus, so please come and talk to us if you want to help out or have any questions or great ideas!
Office Hours: Mondays 1:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.

I’m a fourth-year Electronic Media major with a certificate in Journalism. New to Bearcast, this is only my second year in the organization, but I have immediately fallen in love with it. We have some amazing directors, and I see so much potential for a great year! My passion for radio and community has evolved after completing internships with Cumulus Media and Cincinnati CityBeat. Being in a local band, Misnomer, for the last 6 years, I’m proud of all the amazing talent in our city. Last year I co-hosted a radio show called “Come on, man” with two local musicians, Daniel Sutter and Zack Eklund. I hope to engage Bearcast with the local music community this year as Artist Relations Director. If you ever want to talk music (especially the local scene), feel free to stop by during my office hours!
