Digital Media + Audio
I am a graduate of Saint Edward's University in Austin, Texas. My goals are to play an important role in the technical and creative aspects of digital media. I am looking
to expand my skills in withing a career and learn to grow within a company.
I have been studying audio engineering and business throughout my education. I studied at Mediatech Institute and worked as a lab technician where I learned to manage a studio. Later on, I decided to get a degree in a similar field at Austin Community College. I graduated with my associates in Business of Music, Technology, and Performance. Shortly after I got accepted to study at Saint Edward's University and obtain a degree in Digital Media Management.
At the Saint Edward's college radio station, I was the Senior Content Producer on Topper Radio. I had two internships, one at Arlyn Studios and Hard Pressed Public Relations. During my time in college, I have volunteered, worked for festivals, and were a part of various community groups. My background is in the service industry, which has given me skills in customer service and beyond. I have learned how to get behind goals and how to properly manage a team while working for Starbucks Coffee Company for the past 13 years. Currently, I am working as a Programmatic Coordinator where I am learning to buy media and build strategic campaigns at a digital agency.
I hope that I can offer what I have gained in a career at a media company or production team.
