I currently reside in Pennsylvania but am willing to adjust to fit your position. My demo reel is available on my website. I have experience with several elements of the Abode Creative Suite 5, including Flash and Photoshop. I have completed my major in media art and animation focused on 2D animation in Flash with an interest in Actionscript. During my schooling, I led a team of four students in a 2D/3D collaboration combining After Effects and Flash with 3D Studio Max. I enjoy exercising my creativity through my talents of animation and am willing to explore new software or media to broaden these talents.

To supplement my creative experience, I have worked as a Store Manager with extensive experience in client interaction and team communications for Wawa Food Markets Inc. I have five years of experience working with and building strong teams as well as providing excellent service and products to clients and customers.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I hope to have the opportunity to discuss an opening with you in more detail.
