I’m assuming you’re reading this because you received my resume recently, or are at least remotely interested in seeing if I would be halfway decent at filling a position at your company. If that’s the case (and even if it’s not, I suppose), I’d like to personally welcome you to the site. Hopefully it will make you believe that I’m really good at what I do.
Here’s some more stuff that you may be interested in knowing:
I’m currently a senior at Northeastern University in Boston, which does mean that I’ve been here for five years. I did two co-ops, am majoring in two different things, have a minor, and feel like I definitely made the most out of my college life in Boston. I’ve enjoyed it so much, I think I want to stay in Boston.
As you’ve no doubt gathered, this site serves as my personal portfolio and online hub of all the stuff I find to be good enough to show off. I’ve very recently updated the contents of my portfolio, so definitely check that out to see some of the things I’m capable of doing. I’ve also been working hard on a fourth iteration of this site, but progress has slowed since school got back in session. Yes, I’m making excuses, but it should be reassuring to know that I’m working hard in school still, even after five years. Here’s a screenshot of the site so far, so you know I’m not kidding:
In addition to all of the goodies displayed here, I’ve also done some high-visibility work for a few companies; most notably, Second Nature and the Boston Globe. As a communications intern for Second Nature, I redesigned both the front and back-end of the resources section on their Drupal-run site, acupcc.org, to make the content more accessible and user friendly. I am also currently working for them to completely redesign their current company site using Drupal, in an effort to modernize their web presence and to make content creation simpler.
So please, go check out what I’m capable of doing. I think you’ll find that my large range of material speaks to my ability to work well in many different mediums, as well as my aptitude for learning new technologies quickly. I’ll also encourage you to reach out at any time via email or by phone (860.849.0791) if you would like to hear more about my experience, skills, or interests. Or even just to chat. I’d also be happy to share with you some professional references so you know that I’m not just making stuff up.
I look forward to hearing from you.
