Creative, artistic, optimistic, and persistent are a few words I use to describe myself. Although I have a designer’s perspective, I have a knack for being able to learn and efficiently utilize various types of technology and software. I have an intellectual, academic side that leads me to research, evaluate, and study various topics; as well as, analyze current practices and procedures in order to improve the systems in which I live and work.
I was born and raised in Valdosta (Lowndes County), a South Georgia metropolitan community, where I received a B.S. in Biology and a M.Ed. in Instructional Technology at Valdosta State University. In 1992, I joined the Mu Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Today, I am an active member of Kappa Tau Lambda, the local alumni chapter, and I serve as Mu Omicron’s chapter advisor.
I have over 20 years of experience with front end website design and development. For over 10 years, I have worked in higher education in the area of elearning/distance learning and recently served as an adjunct instructor for Adult and Career Education (teaching a computer systems course). In October 2013, I founded Talent )) Bender, a company that is being positioned to serve as an educational resource and online community for music artists and creative professionals in the music industry that inspires utilization, growth, development, and promotion of talent.
