Photographer/Photo Editor/Social Media Guru

ICC Harbinger

I was one of the newspaper's photographers for the entirety of my time with the paper.At the end of the fall 2012 semester I became the Photo Editor, and was made the primary photographer. I made decisions about what went into each print issue, on the website, and on the Facebook page.I also started and maintained the photoblog hosted on Tumblr. Instead of using the Harbinger website to host photos, it was easier to host them on Tumblr. I revitalized the Harbinger's Facebook presence and instituted guidelines on how content appear on the page.

Student Trainee

Caterpillar Inc.

I assisted the server planning team by funneling information regarding servers from multiple sources into a single spreadsheet. In addition to using the spreadsheet for quarterly auditing, I helped determine what servers were going off lease and needed to be retired. After identifying the servers in question, I wiped them clean so they could be returned. I also did the opposite and set up servers that were received.
