It's been quite a while since I worked in a media production
environment, but that doesn't mean I can't look to get back into it! At
the moment, I'm teaching myself Adobe Premiere, as my college education
was sadly lacking in digital technique. Furthermore, I've found that my
past experience as an administrative and
executive assistant has granted me many skills that are applicable within
a production environment.
Full-time or contract employment utilizing my
skills as both a creative
individual and a trained administrator
and Mac literate. Skills include MS Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint,
Publisher), MS Outlook, Filemaker Pro, Word Perfect, QuickBooks Pro,
DreamWeaver and PhotoShop.
