My name is Alex Vorhies. I am a recent graduate of Drake University with two degrees: a Bachelor of Arts Journalism and Mass Communication in Digital Media Production and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.
I am an aspiring videographer, photographer, and programmer. In my free time, I make videos for YouTube and take photos of whatever interests me.
The videos I make for YouTube belong to a genre called the Let’s Play, where the “talent” plays a game for the audience. In my case, I play many different games on my channel including modded Minecraft, Half-Life, and Portal. I also play other games in my free time, including Overwatch, Destiny 2, and various games with single-player campaigns, like Skyrim and Cuphead.
Now, my website is powered by WordPress, making editing the website and adding to my portfolio easier than ever.
As for my video experience, not only do I regularly upload to YouTube, but I have also created content for Drake Digital News. As part of a class, I created eight news pieces, two of which are hosted here as well: a piece about Griff Gives Back, a pet food drive on campus; and one about a presentation given in Cowles Library in March 2017.
