I’m currently putting the final touches on a promotional video I scripted, directed, and edited from start to finish. Throughout my career, I’ve put my dual degrees in Art and English to maximal use: infusing English lectures with visual aids and games; pairing precise technical copy with meticulous diagrams; and, most recently, rendering 3D product models, creating videos, and engineering audio for both instructional and marketing materials.
I hold dual bachelor’s degrees in Art and English and a master’s in English Writing. While in grad school, I developed and taught 27 unique courses across three universities as an adjunct instructor. In addition, I facilitated, recorded, and coordinated on-site and online tutoring sessions at UW-Milwaukee as Online Tutoring Coordinator. Most recently, I’ve worked as Technical Writer and Production Artist for Gilson, a biotechnology company.
