My name is Katie Amodei. I am a recent graduate from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pa, where I studied Film and Media Arts. I concentrated my studies on film editing and digital animation. I am currently commuting to New York City from Philadelphia. I am looking for an entry level or assitant position as an Editor and/or graphic designer. I am willing to relocate and start as an apprentice or assistant to get my foot in the door.
