| My early career
as a photographer, my middle career as a technical writer and software
engineer, and my later career as a publisher/editor have given me a solid
foundation for a career as a media communications professional. I am currently
pursuing opportunities in a leadership role that can take advantage of
my many years in the workforce and my wide range of experience.
I started my career at Georgia State University (GSU) as a writer, photographer, and Photo Editor for the Signal, the GSU student paper. I went on to act as staff photographer for the Roswell/Alpharetta Neighbor, Creative Loafing, and Southern Voice.
After earning a BA in Journalism,
I entered the corporate world of technology as a technical writer. This
provided me with a variety of writing opportunities in corporate communications,
professional papers, press releases, online help, HTML, technical specifications,
and technical manuals.
In 2004, I completed a Master's degree in Communications at Georgia State University (concentration in film, video, and digital imaging). This degree was a natural extension of my interests and experience in photography, writing, and computer software.
I spent several years as the publisher and editor of Southern Screen Report, a volunteer-supported print and online magazine for the independent film and video community.
I now live in Phoenix, Arizona and work as a technical writer, happily anticipating retirement.
