About Me

Hello, and I am a Senior at Iowa State University and I am currently studying Management Information Systems.  Besides doing the school side of my life, I enjoy being with friends. I have worked many jobs including things with video production, sound technician, IT, printing/graphics, aquatic facilities, and technical sales for an industry leader in LED message displays.

I am a mature and highly motivated college student working towards a degree in Management Information Systems at Iowa State University in preparation for future opportunities in information systems and IT. I am team-oriented with the ability to develop and execute ideas and initiatives. I feel I am reliable employee and student with an excellent work ethic and positive attitude:

Looking for opportunities for internships in IT and technical IT sales. Very passionate about computers and networking.
