I'm currently attending Ithaca College's Park School of Communications, where I'll graduate with a B.S. in Emerging Media and minor in Business Administration on May 20, 2018.

The sun sets over the fountains on the Ithaca College campus.

IC's Emerging Media program includes a core of courses in computer science, television-radio, and strategic communication, then remains flexible to allow the pursuit of anything from traditional media production to video game development. I've chosen to focus my studies on product/web design and development with an emphasis on media entrepreneurship and management.
Some relevant courses on my college transcript:
– Systems Thinking and Design
– Human-Computer Interaction
– Computational Foundations of Emerging Media
– Principles of Computer Science
– Advanced Web Programming
– Media Aesthetics and Analysis
– Legal Environment of Business
– Financial, Management, and Tax Accounting (three courses)
I helped assemble and recommend purchases for the school's new innovation lab, which includes resources for VR development and 3D printing. As a part of our award-winning college radio station, I developed software to replace outdated mini-disc-based equipment. As a TA for the Park School's largest course, I planned and coordinated A/V setups to facilitate large-scale remote presentations by IC alumni.
In 2016, I was awarded the Park Scholar Rising Junior Award, which covers the full cost of attendance at Ithaca College for two years. The program facilitates involvement in community service and encourages the use of media for social responsibility.
With a 3.94 GPA, I am a member of the Ithaca College Honors Program and have been granted membership to the Lambda Pi Eta and Phi Kappa Phi Honors Societies. I have also presented work at Ithaca College's James J. Whalen Academic Symposium. I spent the Spring 2017 semester abroad at the Ithaca College London Center.
While I plan to begin working full-time immediately after graduation, I hope to eventually pursue a master's degree in product design, development, and management.
