Professional Communication, Digital Media, and Education
Media and education have been the two great passions in my life. My involvement in education and technology started in elementary school when my father taught me how to use Adobe Premiere Pro and continued through high school where I led my school computer club in creating an award-winning short film.
As I moved into college, I continued my journey into media studies while still working at Duwall Productions. At Pitt, I worked and continue to work as a professional video editor, creating promotional and educational videos for the university. My projects have included everything from motion graphics to multi-camera 4k shooting, editing, and file management.
I studied for four semesters at Point Park University before completing my Bachelor's Degree in Professional Communications at the University of Pittsburgh. My goal is to take my long experience in media and use it to update education, bringing it into the 21st century. By using video, Podcasts, online tools, and the plethora of online resources available, I hope to pursue my passion and improve online education.
