1000. Robley Dr.
I want to use my skills gained while earning my dual degree in English Literature and
Communications so that I may help the team or staff I join produce a wide range of content in an
organized, timely manner.
Along with customer service experience and social media experience, I am experienced in writing of
all kinds. This includes news, sports, arts and entertainment articles as well as columns, editorials,
essays, copy, and reviews. I am skilled in Microsoft Office, Photoshop, InDesign, Sony Vegas, and
Excel I am a fast learner when it comes to new software or technology in general. I have also taken
several courses on photography and design and understand the finer points of working with cameras
as well as newspaper and website layout. I can help edit content whenever necessary, both from a
technical and stylistic standpoint.
