Live social media and repurposing that content has been at the forefront of my approach to video. It has really grown in my work with Talking Baseball Australia. What began as just a weekly radio show on Sport FM in Perth turned into a weekly live show on Facebook Live and YouTube.
I introduced live video shows on social media in 2013 using the old X platform Periscope. That led to enhanced efforts over the next several years and now live and recorded video content have become a major part of how I tell the story. In 2023 I have continued to repurpose video content from games and from my show "X's Expresso" in Sioux City for the Explorers. I have enjoyed pioneering the use of a booth cam in the American Association, in KC and in SC, using that content as well for other purposes. They have grown to become key bonus components to traditional play-by-play, creating sponsorship and fan growth. I hope to unveil a new video blog in the future called "Winging it." Stay tuned!

I have started sharing some more personal interests on video. During lockdown, I began multi-streaming a virtual Happy Hour show three times a week, and I have also featured some fun stuff like cooking on YouTube. Check them out! I expect to add more interesting content, perhaps travel related, coming soon!
