Bobby joined the Promotions Office (in the Office of Student Life) as staff in 2014, where he had worked as an undergrad since 2011. He graduated from Grand Valley State University with a degree in Film/Video Production with additional emphasis focusing on business. He has completed internships in Detroit, MI with a creative commercial production house and in Los Angles, CA with the prestigious Television Academy Internship Program. His areas of interest include producing, advertising, photography, and business management.

During his undergrad time at GVSU, he began the work to develop the Video Team from a group of part time students to a full time organization which works across campus providing high quality products. Outside of the classroom, he was involved with Grand Valley Television, where he was recognized by various groups including the Michigan Association of Broadcasters for his work. Recently, he has produced short films which have been selected to be screened in festivals on the local, national, and international level. He strives to challenge himself creatively and professionally in his work with Student Life.
