Education

I graduated from the University of Miami in 2010 with a Bachelors in Visual Journalism and Studio Art.  Over the course of my four years there, I took classes in photography, graphic design, typography, illustration, web design, and programming.  However, that does not encompass everything I learned as student.

As a freshman, I volunteered for National Geographic’s Photo Camp in Homestead, Florida.  I was able to work with high school students and teach them the value of visual storytelling.  At the end of the three days, we compiled a slideshow for all the participants showcasing their work.

During my Sophomore and Junior years, I worked for both The Miami Hurricane and the Ibis, the student newspaper and Yearbook.  Both are award winning publications to this day.  During my tenure at The Hurricane, I increased the value of the paper helping my staff to win more awards than in previous years.  I also attended journalism conferences hosted by the Society of News Design in Las Vegas and Buenos Aires, and was a facilitator at the “Best of Newspaper Design” in 2008 in Syracuse, NY.

I graduated from Syracuse University in 2013 with a masters degree in New Media Management and an MBA in Marketing.  During my time at Syracuse, I worked on multiple consulting projects, including projects for ESPN and Next Avenue, a PBS entity.

I also taught an undergraduate graphic design class during my first year as a graduate student.  As a second year student, I created and maintained a social media campaign for a non-profit, with the goal of raising $10,000 by April.  I have written two papers during my time at Syracuse, both focused on social media.  The first focuses on brand loyalty in social media, the second takes a look at the social TV landscape.
