Summary

While at West Virginia University, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies.  This degree was intriguing to me, as it dealt with the communication patterns we see in everyday life.  What I learned during my time in the Communication Studies department is applicable to most interactions I face, whether that be in person or through a medium.

I have grown as a student and as a professional in my collegiate years.  Below you will find some of my material, exhibiting my skills as a worker, writer and communicator.

My academic career at West Virginia University ends on December 18th.  I look forward to beginning my post-graduate life and will be actively job searching once I return home to Rochester, NY.  I appreciate your willingness to view my online resume and portfolio.
