Peyton Gasser, Editor-in-Chief

I've always been fascinated with video. All the different aspects in unison can create a beautiful piece of art. That's why I am glued to any film or video I watch. You can see many different things that add to the greater whole of the piece. Even if it's bad, you can recognize mistakes and make a solution to the problems that would make them better. If you happen to know me, you might think I’m quiet, and to sum it up, you are indeed right. I do have my own thoughts but I am not really good at discussing them. That’s the reason I joined PLD Lamplighter so that I could contribute my skills behind the scenes to something I'm passionate about, even though I'm not chatty about it.

I am a senior and an editor for PLD Lamplighter, and in the future, I want to major in video production in college. I’ve had trouble thinking of what to study, so I thought to go for something that truly interests me. This is my very first year on staff, but I have done one show for my junior year and I am excited to see what work will come this year. I hope to edit WPLD and contribute to the positive impact Lamplighter strives for.I like to read comic books. My favorites are from Marvel and one of my favorite characters is Daredevil. If you like comics too, I'll be happy to talk to you all day about them.
