You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.

what I do

I dabble my toes in a variety of interests: communication, design, web, music industry, film. My passion and love for these interests demonstrate how I've gotten to where I am today.
Management

Through my experiences in management (retail and automotive events) I have learned how to effectively delegate tasks, provide constructive criticism, and lead my team to success.

Great Ideas

I am a creative person that thrives on being innovative. I love creating projects, both individually and in a group, where I can express my creativity and collaborate with others.

Photography

Since high school I have been an avid photographer. My DSLR is strung around my neck anytime I leave my house.

Social Media

Anytime a new social media site comes along I am one of those people that immediately has to know what the hype is all about. You could say I am a social media connoisseur. (Find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Wordpress, Weebly, and formerly MySpace)

Videography

Making videos, particularly music videos, has been a passion of mine since middle school. (Wow, that makes me feel old!) I love being able to create a visual that tells a unique story for others to see.

Web Design

Web design is my most recent hobby, thanks to my stellar education at James Madison University. I love being about to piece elements together to create a visual masterpiece telling the story of a person or a company.
