Social Media Skills

  Twitter Linkedin Facebook Wordpress Timeline Foursquare Icerocket Pinterest Youtube  

Mashups: Google Maps

I have created a google map of Mashups between many different items. I find this to be very interesting and part of what the worldwide web has to offer. 

Audacity

Can work my way around the basics for Audacity 

Adobe Photoshop/HTML Coding

Proficient in Photoshop CSS and HTML coding. Still learning the basic techniques, but I am a quick learner and have already learned so much. 

Windows PC and Mac OS Systems

Familiar with Windows PC and Mac OS System. I currently own a Macbook Pro, however my school has Windows PC so I can switch between either or.  

iMovie

As I have used iMovie continually throughout the years for videography I recently found something that is not known to most people. iMovie has a dark side and has hidden features to make your project look even more professional. However, I will not go into details on the features because I would rather show you in person.    With iMovie I am mostly proud of my work done at the Minnesota Summit to prevent sexual violence. In my iMovie I did extensive research on crimes of sexual violence in advertisements. I conducted a iMovie for the convention and I also created a collage of toxic advertisements. 

Microsoft Excel

Since I am still fairly new with using Excel I do not have anything to show. When I was working for the Assistant to the Dean at Hamline University I had used Excel to do a few key things. Those included...   Managing data records such as name lists and phone numbers Using it as an analytical tool by having the pivot table automatically sort information for me To create forms and consolidate results for the Deans main secretary These are three of the main things I have tested out with Excel. I am still learning the trick of the trade and find Excel to be the most cost savvy way to get tedious things done fast.   

Powerpoint

I am an avid user of Powerpoint. I have recently updated my software so that I can now use all of the great futures Office 2012 has to offer. I have conducted many Powerpoints because I find it brings more energy and visual impact to a presentation. I find this software to be key when working with businesses. Especially when looking into why a business should buy a certain product. It is an organized and cost effective way for a major audience to listen to what you have to say.
