Interest

I am deeply interested in digital media. I produce electronic music and mash-ups (audio & video), and I enjoy perusing the blogoshpere for anything new and exciting in the world of digital media.

Offline, I play soccer, tennis, and table tennis. I enjoy cooking, reading (social/cultural non-fiction, primarily), and crossword puzzles. I also enjoy debate (I competed in debate in high school) and discussing intellectual issues with my peers.

I also love completing Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects. Last summer, for example, I spent some of my free time building a custom desk and workspace. More recently, I have begun brewing my own beer. While I'm certainly not a heavy drinker by any measure, I enjoy the process of crafting my own high-quality, complex beers and sharing them with my friends.

Summary

I am highly personable, intelligent, idea-driven, and confident that I can bring lasting value to your company. I will receive my BA in December from Clark University in Worcester MA, where I study Communications and Culture with a minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I have been recognized for my ability to lead, problem-solve, work with others, and produce results. In my studies of communication, I have enjoyed researching and writing about digital media trends, specifically in social media and communicative technologies. I am passionately curious about the digital space, as it grows increasingly integrated into our daily lives.

I have a strong set of professional, creative, and entrepreneurial skills that I hope to use and grow in a dynamic environment. Please contact me with any questions or to set up a time for us to talk.
