Self Taught

Learning happens in more places than just the classroom, and I pride myself on what I have been able to learn from working in field, and from teaching myself with books, videos, and experience. Here are some examples of skills I’ve gained outside of the classroom:

  • Adobe Creative Suite Software
    • Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver and Flash
  • WordPress Website Development
  • Quickbooks
  • HTML Coding
  • JavaScript
  • CSS3
  • PHP Scripting
  • Computer Troubleshooting and Maintenance for Mac OS X and Windows Platforms
  • Periphals including Plotter Machines, Digital Printers, Scanners, Digital Cameras and Camcorders, Mac iOS, projectors, digital recording stations, and more.

I will always continue to seek out new opportunities to learn even more, and I am willing to be trained to increase my knowledge and skills. I feel I can always learn from others around me, and I see every moment as a learning opportunity.
