As a design intern for TWCS in East Syracuse, NY, I was tasked with creating graphics and helping with motion work for broadcast purposes. It was a very different experience from what I expected, and actually pretty fun. A lot of the work was fairly restricted (explained after the break), and most I can’t actually show. Still, it was a good opportunity, worth presenting in my portfolio.
What’s better and more exciting than combining two of your biggest passions? For Christmas this year, I decided to roast coffee for my family and friends. As I developed blends, I decided I needed to name them, and of course, brand them. Coming up with names and sketching out ideas took a lot longer than actually roasting the coffee, but it was definitely worth the time and effort.
Just a quick note: My site was recently defaced by some jerk hackers, and I’m still in recovery mode. Some parts of the site are busted, and I’m working on recovering those functions. For now, my shadowbox galleries are disabled, but I’m hoping to have them restored soon. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
I am a new media designer, social media lover, project manager, and coffee nerd. I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2010 with a BFA in New Media Design, and I’m currently working on a MS in Information Management, and a CAS in Information Innovation (Social Media) at Syracuse University’s iSchool. Feel free to wander around my site here, check out my work, or my blog.
I really like coffee. It’s a passion, not just a hobby, and I use it for more than a morning wake-up. I started a project this year called Counter Talk, to connect with others via social media, meet over a cuppa joe, to share and inspire each other. I provide the coffee, you provide your passion, I write the story, and we all win!
I’m in the market for an internship, in UX design, or in social media strategy. I’d really like to explore both, equally, but I have more experience with social media at this point. Don’t worry, I won’t let that stop me from learning and trying my best to be awesome. If you’re interested, perhaps check out my resume (PDF).
