I am a digital media enthusiast with a passion for photography, flash, graphics and video. My major has trained me to use
Web and digital computer technology to create, communicate and collaborate with an emphasis on applying these techniques
to the world of business and commerce. I am able to develop multimedia digital presentations, CDs and Web sites. I am
comfortable with the design issues, aesthetic components, computer technology and media tools used in the creative process
and have an understanding of the creative, social and technological issues that shape our world.
