Phoenix, AZ, US



             For the past four years at The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism I have strived to become familiar with different types of media. I have worked in print, online, videography production and broadcast. I am proficient with editing, writing, presenting with knowledge of Microsoft Office suite of products (Excel, PowerPoint, Word), social media, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator. I can shoot and produce quality work in multiple standards. My goal is to become what many find a moving multimedia communicator. My passion is to edit, collect video, information and put my collective knowledge out in many forms for others to see and be then informed.  My previous as well as current work experience consists of a variety of internships, freelance work and multimedia reporting. I have worked with individuals from the local streets of Phoenix, Arizona all the way to politicians on Capitol Hill. In accomplishing these responsibilities I have gained the many aspects to understand what it means to be a multimedia communicator. 
          I am absorbing every angle of information, every distribution technique, and learning at every cost. My mind and knowledge is young and willing. As a candidate for the Marketing Coordinator for NTD Architecture, I can bring forth what I know will expand and change the conversation of communication. I look forward to hearing from you.
