My name is Chris Hansen. No, not the Chris Hansen from Dateline NBC, as I am often associated. I was born in Des Moines, but I have moved around central Iowa over the course of my life. Because of this, I have been able to experience both booming suburbs, and small town Iowa.
I graduated from Earlham High School, in a class of only 49 students. I participated in Football, Basketball, Track&Field, and Baseball all four years of high school. I accepted an offer from Drake University to play football, and study Radio and Television Production. I will graduate in December 2012.
I have been fortunate to acquire many unique experiences in my time at Drake, from presidential elections, to the annual Relays.I’ve travled across the country filming for the football team, and was a member of the broadcast crew for men’s and women’s basketball home games. These experiences will surely be a tool I can use as I transition into the professional world.
My dream is to combine my passions for sports and video. I plan to pursue a career in sports video production.
