Seattle, WA, USA
Today, we're used to living in a digital world, but my life in the digital world started back in high school during the mid 1990s. Thanks to my first multimedia class that included work with Hypercard, Adobe Premiere, and Adobe Photoshop, I knew my path in life and career would involve something with computers and media. I taught myself HTML during my Junior year of high school, and went on to teach a class on HTML for my Senior project. I found myself studying Communications in college while supporting myself with an IT Helpdesk job between classes.

Eventually, I went back to school to get my Master of Communications in Digital Media, and immediately began using my years of schooling and experience with photography, editorial writing, and multimedia to good use as Vice President of Marketing for World One Performance. This position pivoted into becoming the Marketing Director for World CNG, where I embraced the new world of social media, search engine optimization, and pay-per-click advertising.

My digital marking skills are highly developed, and my experience working helpdesk taught me to translate technical or complicated concepts easily to the masses. I am expertly proficient in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom, with plenty of real-world experience using Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and Acrobat Pro. My editorial work as the former Style Editor for Subiesport Magazine and currently the Senior Editor for NWMotiv.com demonstrates my writing abilities, and my photography portfolio truly speaks for itself. Finally, I also love to teach and currently teach Photoshop classes at the University of Washington.

Key proficiencies: Photography, Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Acrobat Pro), Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, MySpace, Flickr, 500px), Wordpress, HTML, CSS, Editorial Writing, Press Releases, Graphic Design, Digital Marketing, Microsoft Office, OSX, Teaching
