Hello! My name is Bailey (he/him/his) and I am a senior, graduating early in December, and I want to pursue a career in media and specifically, in television content, development and production. I am an optimist, a master of organization and a creative problem-solver. I am hoping to combine my love of television production with my passion for education, equity and inclusion. 

My internships and roles throughout college have taught me all about media standards such as the Adobe Creative Suite and I have learned about how a set operates through my Production Assistant roles with CNN, ABC News and on the program, Top Chef Junior.

A major highlight of my collegiate career was when I interned with Twin Cities PBS on the new PBS Kids program, Hero Elementary, which was funded by a Ready-To-Learn Grant. The series combines STEM-based learning with a mission of promoting equity and inclusion in children ages 5-8.

I am currently interning and immersing myself in the fast-paced environment of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. My plan (and dream) is to move to New York City upon graduation. I want to help create and produce diverse and impactful television shows that make a difference.

At Drake, I try to stay involved in as many ways as I can. I currently write for Drake Magazine and The Times-Delphic. I am a fitness instructor who teaches hip-hop dance style classes (I’m just as surprised as you are) at GroupX Fitness in the Bell Center. I am also the communications chair and a member of Drake’s only co-ed acapella group, Fermata the Blue.

Originally, I hail from Saint Paul, MN. I love popular culture and spend far too much time reviewing albums and finding new music. I am very much in love with my three golden retrievers; Bella, Finn and Zeke. I also love being outside whether I’m journaling, hiking or lying by the lake.
