you love about your job?
worked for the Distance Education and Learning Technologies department as a
Web/Multimedia Specialist for over six years, and in this period of time I’ve
met so many wonderful people at the College. I consider this to be one of the
best parts of working at Montgomery College. I helped develop the Hillman Entrepreneur Program’s
website, and in the process I got a chance to meet some wonderfully talented
and super smart students who represent our College, and they all have great
technological ideas for the future. Outside of meeting new colleagues and
students, another part of my job that I love is working with various multimedia.
I love photography and video editing, and I spend a lot of time now doing Video
Captioning. Another fun part of my job is giving workshops and doing one-on-one
walk-throughs with faculty and staff to help them with stuff like web design and
creating video captions. Developing websites is my life and I always try to create
the best looking website, especially for students because they depend so much
on this information to succeed at the College.
you do in your free time?
In my free
time, I play a lot of tennis; and I tell everyone I know that I consider myself
a tennis addict. Also, I walk my dog, Nemo, around the neighborhood every
evening when it’s not raining. I don’t want Nemo to get wet like a fish! Outside
of tennis and walking, I do a lot of writing. I write almost everything that
comes to mind, and last year, I put together and self-published a poetry book,
which is on display in the Germantown Campus Library!
are you excited about in your life right now?
exciting thing about my life right now is I have one more course to go before I
get my master's degree at UMUC. I’m really excited because I’ve worked so hard,
and written so many research papers that I’ve actually completely memorized all the APA
reference citations! I've also recently finished my first novel last December and
I’m currently in the process of editing it before I print it out for some
friends to read.
Besides spending most of my time on the tennis courts during the weekend, one of my
favorite hang-out places has to be the movie theater! While I love watching movies on
the IMAX screen, I can’t stand watching 3D movies. I find it doesn't add to the
movie experience. If you haven’t been to Majestics 20 in Downtown Silver Spring
for the IMAX screen, then you should definitely check it out. It’s the best way
to watch a movie on the big screen. Just don’t watch IMAX 3D because
you’ll be paying like $500 for a movie ticket. :-D.
