Objective

seeking job opportunities in photography and design related fields.

Hello and Welcome!

I am a graduate from Kansas State University looking for a position in a Photography or Design related field. I am also open to office positions within any company. 

I have always had a strong passion for creating things out of nothing. As I grew up in school I realized more and more that I simply was not happy unless I was apart of creating something.

While attending Kansas State University I majored in Fine Arts with a concentration of photography. I acquired a lot of darkroom and digital photography experience, as well as design and composition skills. My teachers and professors required both proper technique and strong expression. I also learned basic graphic design skills using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

I am a fast learner, mainly because I love learning new skills and techniques, as well as improving my abilities in any way possible. I am a very hard worker who is goal and detail orientated. I strive hard to produce high quality products and results.

I hope to utilize my energetic creativity, attention to detail, enthusiasm to learn, and effective communication to help your company produce quality images of people and events.

Please contact me with any opportunities available.
