Experience Outside of Ministry

Apart from all of my experience in the field of ministry I have a significant amount of professional experience in the IT and technology fields. This experience allows me to adapt easily to new technologies, follow technical trends, and resolve computer issues in any professional environment. In conjunction with my Information Technology experience comes experience in audio and video editing along with graphic design and web design work. This has allowed me the opportunity to work with programs such as Microsoft Office applications, Adobe products like Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, and After Effects; these programs alongside of my extensive soundboard and recording work make me a valuable asset in more ways than one in a church community.
