Since middle school, Cory has had a true passion for all things audio, serving as part of the award-winning Valley Middle School and Carlsbad High School TV program for 6 years. After spending 2 years shooting and editing corporate videos for the TurningPoint Executive Search, filming and editing 2 short films, and recording several original songs, Cory was admitted to the Jacobs Music School, Audio Engineering & Sound Production program at Indiana University (IU) in 2020.

After working on the “Play Hard Podcast” in 2022, Cory rejoined the TurningPoint team in 2023 as our Podcast Production Associate. Cory is part of the IU Radio and TV Services team, in addition to playing drums and collaborating on songwriting for the band Syzygy in Indiana. He and the band played more than 10 venues off and on campus throughout 2022, recording a single and playing several local music festivals.

Cory’s ability to mix, synthesize, and engineer podcasts and live music is the perfect fit for the new podcast, The Practical Optimist, hosted by Ken Schmitt.
