I’m looking for employment opportunities to work on designing and developing news products and applications!
I’m graduating in March 2019 a major in journalism, a minor in computer science, and a certificate in human-centered design from Northwestern University. I was a news design intern at The Washington Post and a new media products intern at The Chicago Sun-Times.
I thrive when working with information.
I anticipate the future and prepare for potential obstacles, as well as develop plans for avoiding them. For example, I established the first set of editorial policies for North by Northwestern while publisher of the campus newsmagazine.
I like to work across disciplines, and I love teams that do, too.
My college transcript has many annotations because I love being able to work with and learn many different things.
Because of this, I’m practiced at communicating with engineers and non-engineers. The most fun I had was when I produced the sponorship packet for campus engineering racecar team Northwestern Formula Racing.
I learn fast.
You might say its been the only career I’ve ever had in my life.
I have a foundational knowledge of a lot of skills and topics, which means I can make connections and rapidly pick up more expert skills.
I went from knowing nothing about Python’s
sockets package to completing a working HTTP server in a day. (Ask for details. Repo private as it was submitted for a graded assignment.)
I'm a huge nerd.
While those are my softer skills, I’m comfortable with the following things:
- HTML, CSS
- C, C++, C sharp
- Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro
a kind, talented, diverse and inclusive team, willing to take on a youngling fresh out of college
trying to make the world a better place, either directly or indirectly
around spring 2019
specifically, any city where I can easily get by without a car. I’m currently in Evanston, Illinois (suburb of Chicago), I love San Francisco, and I adore Washington, D.C.
In addition, this is my list of would-be-nices (but not musts!):
- opportunity to work in many different disciplines (design, development, data, product, front-end, back-end, engineering, writing)
- a sustainable/improving business model
- a culture of defaulting to openness
- salary transparency within the org (and during hiring)
- a commitment to taking action to improve diversity/inclusivity
