Director of Digital Studio and Education

At UC Riverside, I designed and produced the education department’s press releases, brochures, postcards, fliers, and posters, particularly for our educational artist talks, community exhibitions, summer camps, and signature public programs such as our FIRST Sunday Family Days and FIRST Thursday Arts Nights. With skills in graphic design, illustration, photography, digital video, I used Final Cut Pro, InDesign, and Adobe Photoshop to create short films and multimedia pieces that could engage visitors. An excellent writer, I have also written web site copy, co-authored grant proposals, developed educational curriculum, and authored short exhibition essays.
