Telly Awards

Humbled and honored to announce that two 2017 productions have received Telly Awards! These projects were so special because of the human stories they told - one of hope when facing life's toughest challenges, and the other of starting a new and life-changing journey at one of the greatest schools around.

Class of 2021, Welcome to Marmion
My second annual video for my alma mater's freshman orientation - quickly becoming one of my favorite days of the year. The night before Orientation, each MENtor was given a notecard and asked to write down what they would say to the freshman class in two weeks. The best responses became the script for the year’s video.
