Internship with Sony at NAB 2015


I am thrilled to announce I will be a part of the Sony NAB 2015 Student Experience Program in Las Vegas next week. It is an honor to represent Sony at the media and production industry’s premier event.

If you’ll be at NAB, stop by the Sony booth and say hi. I’ll be in the Event Production area with Sony’s MCS-8M.


The MCS-8M is Sony’s compact AV mixing switcher. Here are a few videos describing the product.

Two Questions Every Engaged Couple Should Ask Themselves

James and LaJoie

After many years of friendship and a year and a half of dating, I asked my best friend, LaJoie Jewel, if she would marry me. Since she nodded her head and said, “Yes,” I think that means we’re stuck together for life! And I don’t mind one bit.

The proposal was wonderful, magical, epic, and all of those other words that translate to, “You can’t get this feeling any other way.” It was an incredible, life-changing, never-ever-ever going to forget kind of day. I highly recommend it.

Now that I’m 23 days into the engagement phase of my life, I am passing on some questions every engaged couple should be asking themselves.

Are we more excited about the wedding day, or the marriage?

I told my fiancée I want our wedding day to be special for her. And I do. This should be one of the top 3 most extravagant days of her life. I cannot wait to see her and her sparkling blonde hair walk down the aisle toward me.

But there’s this little thing called
