ExperienceFor 4 1/2 years, I worked as an assistant in media production at the University of Alabama Center for Instructional Technology. We specialized in producing promotional content for University programs and departments, including animations, production work, and motion graphics. This position gave me experience working in corporate video production, and gave me technical proficiency in a variety of post-production software and a strong understanding of compression.

Currently, I am working for the Alabama Center for Public TV as a production assistant, with a focus on editing, color grading, and motion graphics. This has given me a more fast-paced work environment, teaching me how to deliver quality work with tight deadlines.
