Interesting item about yourself to remember you by: I played an extra in the TV show 'Dawsons Creek', while living in Wilmington where it was filmed. I also ran a 10K and a marathon with Oprah Winfrey.[1]


I am currently a student at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, with a major in Web Design and Development, and will graduate in December, 2012.

Information Technology Experience: Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Photoshop, and multiple industry specific professional applications. I've had some continuing education courses at UNC Wilmington in MS Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
