As broadcast programming manager of Ch. 7, Mr. Rawls oversees the flow of student and university related video content from student/faculty films and artworks, promotional videos, distinguished lectures and events, sports games, talk shows, student produced newscasts and documentaries.

Born and raised in Texas, Mr. Rawls was attracted to artistic expression from an early age and grew to love the art form of cinema. He cut his teeth on Super 8mm short films and digital video while a student at Lamar University. Upon graduation he was accepted to the graduate program at the University of Texas at Arlington where he was mentored by acclaimed artist and filmmaker Andy Anderson who taught him the value of all art forms as Mr. Rawls developed a library of short films and artworks while teaching intro level students.

Over the years Mr. Rawls' work has been exhibited in film festivals and art galleries all across the nation. After graduation Mr. Rawls worked on syndicated television crews, shot and edited news packages for broadcast, and produced commercial and promotional videos for a variety of clients before returning to teaching. Since working at Lamar, he has completed work on his first feature length film, Nitzinger: Tears From There to Here and has continued producing/directing/editing The Jason Project, a yearly series of feature length educational documentaries under the National Geographic banner in conjunction with Dr. James Westgate of Lamar's Department of Earth and Space Sciences.

In addition to filmmaking, Mr. Rawls is scheduled to present his treatise, Superman: The Man of Today? at the Pop Culture Association in New Orleans and is currently developing other academic works for future presentation and publication.
