Thank you for stopping by!
I can send potential employers and collaborators my resume and references, by request. Below, you can view my portfolio, and learn other relevant information needed to help determine if I’d be a great fit for your team.
Instead of a traditional resume, I’ve included my curriculum vitae in order to provide a more complete synopsis of my background, experience, and current associations and projects. References are included.
Send me an e-mail if you’d like a copy of my CV.
I’ve recently published a book of poems I wrote as a teenager in 2016. It’s available at Amazon.com, and it’s available for free if you click here. It’s entitled, “Stuff I Wrote from My Heart— The Ingenue“. “The Ingenue” is the first of a series of poetry chapbooks I’ve written. The next chapbook is forthcoming.
Although I’ve written many essay in college and graduate school, I do like to research and write about topics which interest me. Here are some of my personal essays.
- Good Night and Good Luck— An Observation
- Reality Television and Its Effects on Body Image— A Study on Media and Culture
- The Influence of the Bachelor and His Bachelorette— A Cultural Studies Analysis

I’ve previously gained ten years of experience as a communications and media director at a church called Memorial Tabernacle Christian Life Center. I helped the organization to develop its communications and media policies in key areas like information coordination, calendaring, the usage of member image and likeness in our publications, event communications planning, and volunteer team member roles, descriptions and volunteer policies.
I also created the organization’s template for press releases to media organizations. My work also included the development of the organization’s communications and media plan, in addition to making sign-up forms and reading schedules, and developing and conducting surveys to help church leaders to get things done.
