Public Relations
Through all of my career ventures I have learned traits that have helped me to gain knowledge in the skill of Public Relations.  I Love and respect my Lord and Savior, and cannot help but desire to return the love and respect to others.  I am found to be honest, trustworthy, sincere, hard-working, a team player, creative, and enthusiastic; all of which have grown great connections and fellowship with contacts.
Vocal Performance
From High School through now I use this skill in praise to God.  I have had the honor of performing with major ensembles, including A'Capella, Chamber, Jazz, Olivet Nazarene University's Orpheus, and several Homecoming groups consisting of members now in a Vocal career.    While attending Olivet Nazarene University I was chosen to lead a contemporary worship team through LifeSong, and the Nazarene church appointed me as their Music Leader.    I currently write songs and perform at scheduled concerts in a ministry I feel God has called me into.
I competed in multiple competitions with manual drafting, illustration, and artistic media, honored to have recieved first place on several occasions.  My hobby lies in this area.  I create wall art, architectural and advertisment presentations, and design using this skill.
Microsoft Excell
I have used Excell multiple times to organize financial accounts with planning, recieving, and tracking.  It has helped for charting schedules and organizing activities as well.
Microsoft Word
I have experienced Word as an excellent resource for advertising, presentation, and achieved over forty words per minute. 
Google SketchUp
This program has been used multiple times for illustration purposes, helping both contractors and clients to visually see the final results of my projects.
AutoDesk AutoCAD
I have used AutoDesk Computer Aided Drafting tools through schooling opportunities and competitions, taking first place in state, and placing thirteenth in the Nation for Architecture.   I have worked over three years in the drafting field, using the program for both Architectural and Engineering projects.  This experienced allowed me to use it, not only for construction plans, but also for three-dimensional rendering and presentation. 
Microsoft Powerpoint
I use Powerpoint for creating newsletters, advertisements, and presentations for youth ministry, special events, and promotions.


I feel called of God to keep a ministry through youth and music.  The Christian Lifestyle I live out through these ministries challenge me to mirror His example; a great character seen throughout all of my accomplishments.
