Education

Education

Digital Media

St. Petersburg College

I added on to my existing knowledge of video production at Saint Petersburg College. I studied how to shoot video, edit video, write scripts, and manage a large production at SPC. I'll keep taking the classes for fun, and eventually get an AS in video too. Streaming content, online videos, "viral" videos etc. are as much a part of the web as graphic design and html are now. So, why not keep studying it?  

Digital Media

St.Petersburg College

I leanred graphic design, front end web design, a bit of programming, and a bit of internet marketing at Saint Petersburg College.

Jul 2002 - May 2007

BA

Florida State University

I gained a solid  understanding of the media business at FSU. I studied all kinds of media-film, television, public relations, advertising, and even got a little into theater and acting. I took in depth courses on how media effects society, and society effects media from some great researchers at FSU. I was introduced to great theories about how people learn information and form their opinions. I also am fascinated by the different belief systems of the world, and earned a major in religion as well at FSU. Studying what people believed and why they believed it was a nice "aside" to my studies in communication. I completed an internship in Public Relations and Marketing at the Tallahassee Museum in the summer of 2006 as well.

Public Speaking

I took many classes in acting and public speaking,  in both high school and college. I was a reporter for my high school's TV news show. I was on a public access program, "Living my Dreams," once in 2007. I have been a camp counselor for two summers at The Academy at the Lakes. So, I am very comfortable speaking in front of a group of people.
