Summary

I am a reliable and friendly employee who quickly learns and masters new concepts and skills.  I have never had a paying job, however I have volunteered at Scout Island for the past 3 years  and I have volunteer at Fresno State helping psychology students in web design and coding. These experiences have taught me how to be professional and courteous no matter what the scenario. Fishing and camping have been a big part of my life, with multiple fishing/camping trips every year from an early age. I am experienced with  the proper usage of equipment such as lines, poles, tying of knots, bait, hooks, and cleaning of fish in both fresh and saltwater environments. Camping for a long time has also taught me how to pack, set up camp, and proper fire safety.
