Education

Arizona State University

Master of Science (Technology)
Graphic Information Technology
Tempe, Arizona
2014 - 2015

Bachelor of Science
Graphic Information Technology
Tempe, Arizona
2012 - 2014


Graphic Information Technology (GIT) at ASU combines many creative fields into one program to include desktop publishing, photography and web design. I have developed a creative, technological and managerial understanding of these areas through the GIT program. Being able to plan, create, evaluate, organize and disseminate visual information to a variety of audiences is a valuable and much-needed skill. My focus area in GIT was print and digital publishing, with a minor in technical writing.

I was the student representative for Adobe's Partners By Design program. In this role, I assisted in organizing events related to Adobe products including tutorials and Bēhance portfolio reviews. I also encouraged students to submit their work to the Adobe Design Awards and wrote for the Adobe Showcase blog about events at ASU.

I was the assistant creative lead during the production of the first iPad app for the Graphic Information Technology program that was built using Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite.

I completed a masters degree in Graphic Information Technology in December 2015. This degree added on to everything I learned as an undergraduate while supplementing elements from management and business courses.

Telford aviation

Flight Engineer

2009 - 2011

Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

Stuttgart, Germany
 

I maintained and traveled with government aircraft supporting military missions across Africa and Western Europe in this position. This role required me to perform incredibly complex inspections before, after and during flight to uphold safety and military readiness.

When an issue arose at home base or in another location, I worked with my team to resolve it as quickly and as safely as possible. I had to think quickly and efficiently, often in third world locations, to solve issues related to aircraft maintenance and documentation. This required an incredible amount of patience and concentration.
