Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I grew up in Calgary and have always had a passion for photography and videography. I applied to Ulethbridge as a history major planning to go into education. I made a lot of videos for fun during my first time documenting experiences and such, and some of my brother's friends asked why I wasn’t in New Media. I took New Media 1000 and was hooked. I swapped degrees that semester and am currently working on a Bachelor's of Fine Arts (Multidisciplinary), with streams in New Media, Art and Music. I have taken many New Media classes since New Media 1000 and have recently been introduced to the art side of photography and been enamored with film photography and the dark-room processes.
How long have you been at ULethbridge and what do you do here?
I just finished my fourth year here at Ulethbridge and right now I am doing a Work2Learn position as a Digital Signage Designer in the Communications office. I manage the signage requests and post them onto the campus-wide TVs. I work 10 hours a week and get to spend lots of time working with the design team sharpening my skills and learning.
What's the best part of your job?
The people I work with are fantastic and have all been great advocates for my success. I enjoy coming up with designs for signage, as every sign is like a puzzle of information that needs to be sorted in an effective and legible manner.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I spend lots of time doing freelance photography and shooting film. I skateboard and boulder a lot to keep myself active. I love listening to records and playing and recording music. This summer, I am planning on creating a photo book documenting the drive from Lethbridge to Calgary and how fundamental it is to the student experience.
