I am a 28-year-old Graduate of the University of Michigan, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have spent the last five years serving in the United States Navy as an Aviation Structural Mechanic for Safety Equipment, working hard to pay for the great education I received. Now I am using the immeasurable life lessons I have gathered from both of these experiences, and all prior, to focus on my passion and see where it takes me. Though photography is my main area of interest in my personal life, I am very interested in a career that could meld the range of skills that I have been trained on both artistically and militarily.
I have an insatiable need to show the stories that people, places and objects have to tell. There is no subject matter that does not captivate me. I am extremely analytical in all areas of my life. For this I find the processes of art to be a fitting and fulfilling way to express all that I see and experience.
To give you a brief idea of what I can bring to the table, artistic trades include: Critical Thinking, Project Development, Collaborative Concept Development, Creative Processes, Community Engagement and Collaboration, Color Theory, Drawing, Painting, Photography, Video, Audio, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, 2D-3D Design, Sculpture, Furniture Design, Pottery, Metals and Jewelry Design. Program experience includes: Adobe Creative Suites, Flash, Maya Autodesk, Final Cut Pro HD and all Microsoft Office Programs.
Please keep in mind that where I lack in professional experience in the field, I immeasurably makeup for with my tenacity, adaptability and intellect. My military background has trained, tested and perfected my abilities in leadership, organization and attention to detail while still effectively meeting all of the requirements of the task at hand. While working two deployments on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan, I can safely and securely say that I am an expert at timely and innovative solutions made while working in fasted paced, high stress environments. I truly believe my unique blend of background between the arts and the military makes me the perfect candidate to work with your company.
