I recently accepted a summer
project / temporary role through August 2019 with an innovative STEAM academy
in Northern New Jersey. In this role, I’ll act as photographer/videographer/editor
for in-house production: social media content, short-form videos and slideshows.
My responsibilities will include coordination,
production and post-production of strategically planned marketing photos/videos
across two company locations serving Bergen County, New Jersey and Rockland
County, New York.
This short-term opportunity is
ideal since I am relocating to Washington, D.C. in late August. This academy teaches kids how to code and
program smartphone apps, film and edit digital movies and develop digital
inventions. I will manage the social
media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), utilize scheduling software
(Buffer), shoot photos and videos (Canon DSLR), and edit (Creative Suite,
Movavi). I’m happy to partner up with
this company because STEAM = STEM + Media Arts.
In recent years, I volunteered extensively at Liberty Science Center as
an ambassador, while also training and mentoring new volunteers. I support learning methods that increase
critical thinking and offer hands-on learning experiences. It is particularly important that young children,
especially girls are exposed to opportunities to use knowledge and skills in
ways that are practical and applicable to the real world.
Please note, I will still accept freelance photography and videography projects. Feel free to reach out for special pricing and seasonal studio shoots.
I am officially a graduate of Rowan University! Earlier this month, I completed my final undergraduate semester with a 3.9 GPA and 3rd consecutive placement on the Dean’s List. Overall, I secured a degree with cum laude Latin honors. I also managed to complete my degree in only three years resulting in savings of approximately $30k (not TUH-DAY Sallie Mae). I received a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Radio, Television and Film with a Production concentration, New Media minor and Public Relations and the News certificate of undergraduate study.
I selected Rowan University because I wanted a hands-on television and film production degree, complimented by a new media communication program. Rowan’s College of Communication and Creative Arts has a revered documentary program and I wanted to take classes alongside a group of students with roots in the Garden State that I feel represent the future of the industry. I have no buyers-remorse and I am #RowanPROUD. I made the most of my college experience and I’m excited for this next chapter in life.
