- Bethlehem US-PA
Minor completed in Mass Media and Communications Technologies with tracks of study in Graphic Arts and Design, Digital Photography, and Internet and New Media.
At twenty-nine years and climbing I seek to continue learning and working in the fields that I am passionate about: technology, social and new media, communication and collaboration, business management, et. al. I seek to move to a professional environment that embraces creativity, open-mindedness, continued education and constant change. As I search for the best place for my skills to be applied, I think of starting my family and the financial support needed to secure their futures.
Some define success as financial wealth or ability to sustain ones desired lifestyle and provide for their family, and while I agree, I must add to the definition that personal success is achieved when one gets to spend their days doing what ever it is they love to do. Only then is there a true quality of life. Therefore it only makes sense that my interests are congruent with and supportive of my career goals. I maintain what I believe to be a healthy interest in technology, communication and collaboration tools, new media and social networking. Some who know me well may joke that my time on twitter and reading tech blogs and following other industry experts is more of an addiction that requires a twelve step program, I argue that I simply love to learn and be an early adopter of the newest technologies and trends.
Other interests include sports, fitness, photography, travel, nature and the outdoors, and politics.
Professional Communicator for several companies including various roles such as B2C and B2B sales person, Public Relations Manager, Account Executive, and Project Manager. My experience includes launching social media campaigns, crisis communications planning, internal and external communications, copy writing, conflict resolution, interactive marketing campaign management, campaign monitoring and measurement and more. From my current role my short term goal is to either advance internally through our marketing division or step into a "Director" level position with another organization. On the long term I desire to succeed in offering freelance consultancy services in my areas of expertise in the fields of Internet and new media technologies. More specifically the implementation of cloud computing concepts in management and communications such as collaborative CRM and social networking tools.
