Photography and photo editing/manipulation is one of my passions of life. Photography is an art. It's a unique and interesting way to capture raw emotion. Photography can tell a 1000 word story in one image. It is a permanent window into a view of life. A photograph can make you think, or laugh, or cry, or happy, or angry. It's one of my favorite things to do, when I have the time.
Music is art for the ears. Just as how photography is a story we can see, music is a story for the ears. With every stroke of the bow across the strings, the pure emotion of the instrument rings throughout the hall. I have been a viola player for 10 years now. I also have a background in piano and music production. Music is, in my opinion, the most powerful method to express how we feel, and I love being a part of it.
I am on the forefront of consumer technology. I was a smartphone user before the word smartphone was common place. I am always updated on the latest tech trends. People come to me to learn what's new. I built my own computer. I go through phones more than you can count. Need tech advice, or tech support? Find me. I got you covered.
Friends are there for you. They are there to support you, care for you, love you, and stick by you. My friends are the whole world to me. It's in my name. Literally. I love meeting new people and learning their background and experiences. I'm a social butterfly; a people person. Get to know me. I'm your friend (Get it?).
My Time at ETSU
My college career began here at East Tennessee State University, as a member of the College of Business and Technology. I have always been passionate about technology, and I felt that my calling was to be a system administrator. I happily began in the Fall of 2015, in the computing department.
It was a disaster.
That's why I'm here now. Programming was a nightmare. I would dread the projects or dread going to class. When I talked to my friend who switched to a Communication major, I started to get interested. I spoke with my cousin who works at the Tombras group in Knoxville, and immediately wanted to have her job. I want to inspire and move the world with advertising for companies that I think are amazing.
Let's see where I go from there.
I'm involved in campus life as well. You can find me in the cave on Fridays playing Smash Bros., as part of the ETSU eSports club. I also am an active member of ETSU's College Democrats. I am an active participant in ETSU's Residence Hall Association. I also am an RA for Carter, Stone, and Powell Hall.
REPUBLIC OF GAMING
Yes, I'm a gamer. If I'm not studying, working, or in class, I'm playing video games. I used to own a PS4, but recently I replaced it with my own gaming computer (the superior choice...fight me on this one). The two games I've been playing the most at this time are Overwatch and Forza Horizon 3. You can find me on Battle.net, Steam, Origin, and even Xbox Live. Find me, and let's play some games together.
