Objective

I'm a driven, two-steps-ahead-of-the-game mass media and graphic design scholar with hopes of working in design or journalism. I also have experience with radio and television, including extensive video and audio editing training. I've been at ease in front of a green screen since high school and can run a radio show with no error. I'm also very skilled in page design using Photoshop and InDesign. As a well-rounded scholar of medias, I would be an excellent contribution to any publication.
