I am currently majoring in Visual Communication Design, or VCD for short. I am also pursuing a minor in Art. I have been at EWU for three full years and finishing up my fourth. I plan to graduate fall 2016. A few skills that will be valuable for me to bring to this project is my love for taking things apart and putting them back together, seeing how things work, and solving a problem that many people may have. When I was little I would take a lot of different things apart then they were broken to see how they work or what was wrong and put them back together to see if I was able to fix them and have them work again. In high school I was a sound technician for the theatre, I feel like the skills I learned though that will also be beneficial to this project. As a sound technician part of my job was to make things work when they weren’t, working with tons of wires, and what felt like being a miracle worker most of the time. I feel that my overall problem solving skills will be my main strength during this project.
