I have AAS degrees in both Photography and Communication (Graphic) Design, and will be heading to UMW Fall 2014 to pursue my bachelor's.

I have worked extensively in a Photography studio for over 2 years now, working with multiple lighting systems for portraits and architectural photography. I work Part time at the NOVA photo lab assisting students with Darkroom and Digital photography, including post-processing (Adobe Photoshop/Lightroom etc.).

I have created books and magazines using Adobe InDesign. I was in the Air Force and as such, a non-traditional student myself, but am very patient, organized and detail oriented when it comes to assisting students.
