Academic Honors

Microsoft Office

I have been using Microsoft applications since before middle school.  I am familiar with Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Excel.

Russian Language

Adobe Photoshop

I taught myself to use Adobe Photoshop when I was in 6th grade.  I worked with it through high school, both to create images and to retouch photos; I mostly put it to use when working on a photography project.

Video Editing Software

I taught myself how to use Sony Vegas when I was in middle school, beginning mostly with slideshows that became increasingly intricate.  I have progressed to the level that I have edited a few wedding videos using this software.  While I am most comfortable with Sony Vegas, I also have some experience using Final Cut Pro because of the ITAP Digital Video Rotation.  I also have some experience with Adobe Premier, but am not as comfortable with it as I am with the other programs.

Digital Photography

I have been doing photography professionally since my junior year of high school, working on my own on projects such as senior photos and wedding photography.
