Internship at AdWorks: Concepts & Designs in Little Rock, AR.
This was an excellent chance for me to put into action what I learned in school. I designed several new websites using Adobe products and then coded them in HTML/CSS. I also performed regular website maintenance on several of their sites.
- College Experience I had classes that exposed me to fast paced working environments. Often I would be working on several projects at one time. As part of my training at Harding University I gained valuable time management skills. I have also learned dedication to completing a project and seeing it through until it is perfect.
- I like desiging and being creative and seek that through web design and also through my passion in music. I taught myself how to play the bass guitar and drums and I enjoy getting together with friends and jamming. I also have a passion for longboarding and have used that passion to create a community of longboarders in Arkasnas. I have also taught myself how to build my own boards and I am in the process of assembling my own CNC machine from scratch to help cut them...you know, for fun.
- I enjoy hanging out with friends, good movies, and good food. I also enjoy helping people and spent most of my summers during college working at a summer camp. During highschool I spent a lot of time doing summer mission trips to places like Mexico. I have plans of continued relief/mission trips to Haiti and other 3rd world contries for the future.
