Written by Damon Rothgeb, Content Production Intern
I joined the MediaSource team in late August and have been enjoying the great work environment and wonderful co-workers here. I grew up and attended high school at Upper Arlington, minutes away from our office on Fifth Avenue. After graduating high school and being unsure about my career path, I spent two years at Columbus State Community College acquiring an Associate of Arts degree.
During my time at Columbus State, I made friends, took required prerequisite classes and most importantly found my passion in life: astronomy. After taking my first astronomy class, not only was my mind blown, but a realization of my goals in life came to fruition.
Unfortunately, after multiple classes and a lab, I came to the sad conclusion that my intended major of astrophysics was not going to be feasible or enjoyable when I transferred to The Ohio State University. Determined to still have my foot in the sciences somehow, I decided I would combine a lifelong love for music and film with my newly discovered passion. I enrolled at OSU in the spring of 2014 and have spent the remaining time learning about the media industry as well as how to best influence viewers.
In the summer before my last semester, I was fortunate enough to find out about the content production internship at MediaSource and jumped at the opportunity. They have continually proved themselves to be one of the best producers of video and written content in Ohio. Their ability to create content from start to finish, including a fully functional studio, separates them from the many media companies in the Columbus area.
Even better than their content is their employees. Lisa and Clark, the president and vice president, have done an incredible job assembling a team of highly skilled and motivated workers to service their customers' needs. Not only are they skilled workers but they are all wonderful and down-to-earth people who make the work environment that much better.
Given their excellence, and track record of great work, MediaSource will be a great opportunity for me to learn from the best when it comes to multimedia production. Despite all of the ups and downs I sustained in my journey to find my path in life, I am genuinely proud to learn from such a distinguished company.
