About

Hi, there! I am currently attending Texas State University, pursuing a long life of happiness. I am a graduate student studying digital media. I work as a Graduate Assistant for the Fundamentals of Digital and Online Media and as a Research Assistant for Dr. Ngondo, Professor of Public Relations. I chose this career path because of my love of social networking, web development, technology growth and simply helping others from a platform where opportunities come everyday. With the hopes of someday being someone who makes a difference, or just being a helping hand, I believe my passion lies within this field. I love social media, so naturally I had my first taste of it at the young age of ten. Unconsciously, my first experience with HTML coding was when I used Myspace, and although it sounds ancient now, I could remember as if it were yesterday that I was editing my friends' profiles simply because I was fascinated by the language. You can usually find me hiding behind a computer, hiking new trails in Central Texas or napping with my puppy!

Magazine Project

This magazine project was created for an undergraduate course at Texas State University. The magazine was a subject of our choice and we had to edit the photos to look as if they'd be featured on a magazine. My magazine is over dog models, called Canine Quarterly, inspired by GQ Magazine. I do not reserve rights to all photos. All photos not belonging to me are attributed in the project. This project was saved as a PDF and was created using InDesign.
