Summary

I have been an active practitioner since 1998, specializing in different areas of design and web technology, including HTML, CSS, user experience design, social media integration and outreach, graphic/print design, and photography. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts and while a majority of my experience comes from higher education, I look forward to the opportunities and new challenges that working in any field or position would bring. I am a self-starter, but also a team player. I have an upbeat,yet professional, demeanor, and a can-do attitude.

Experience

Oct. 2008-Present

Webmaster
Morgan Community College – Fort Morgan, Colorado

When I started in 2008, I was responsible for redesigning and upgrading the website, and getting the college on social media. I have worked closely with the Director of College Communications and Marketing as the sole web employee, performing the duties of a webmaster in both design, development, and ongoing maintenance. I have also quite often taken on the duties of a graphic designer in producing both internal and external collateral. As needed, I produce original photography for both mediums. I am also in charge of college-wide social media strategies and marketing, including geofencing. Additionally, I have also often been asked to do presentations on new design trends and technology for the other 12 colleges in our state-wide system, and have provided support to my counterparts.
