Carter Ellwood
Updated December 2012
Student at Michigan State University

My name is Carter Ellwood and I want to tell you a bit about myself. I am a 3rd year student with senior status at Michigan State University studying Media and Information-Tv, Radio and Film with a specialization in Documentary Studies. I hope to one day be a successful producer of sports television for a major broadcaster. I am an absolute diehard sports fan and can watch and get into any sport put in front of me. First and foremost I love learning and growing as person. Whether it be in the realm of academics, video production or sports, I am always looking for a way to get better. Although I love all forms of competition, rugby has been a lifelong passion and it has greatly contributed to the person I am today. I have learned how to lead a team, teach a skill, refuse to quit and react quickly to an incredibly variable environment. Another passion of mine that has taught me a lot is volunter work. I have been on multiple mission trips and volunteered for Habit for Humanity for 2 months last summer. It greatly improved my work ethic and overall made me a much better person. I have a lot to offer any company or organization and I hope to be given the opportunity to show just how valuable I am.
