2006 - 2007


Butler Family Medical Center

I worked for my fathers family practice as a secretary during the summer of '06 and '07. I learned the importance of filing systems as well as how to work better with customers/patients.


I enjoy movies and music just as everyone else does.

However, I am considered by many of my friends to be a rather harsh movie critic. And when it comes to music, I'm always learning more and expanding my horizons. I currently dabble with guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, harmonica, piano, and violin. I have also studied DJ programs including VirtualDJ, Ableton Live, Traktor, and Serato Scratch Live.

I swam competitively from middle school until my senior year of college. I loved the experience as well as the relationships that formed into lasting friendships with my fellow athletes and coaches.

After graduation from West Virginia University I plan to enlist in the United States Coast Guard.

I am dedicated, driven and hard working, a quick learner who enjoys taking pride in his work.


I am interested in furthering my liberal arts education in the communication field via a career path in which I use my communication studies degree. More specifically, I plan on attending graduate school in order to receive my masters degree in a more specific discipline, after I have enlisted in the United States Coast Guard.
