Since my graduation from SCAD, I’ve been an intern at the non-profit New City Kids / New City Church, based in Jersey City, NJ. Over the summer my responsibilities included camp counseling and sailing instruction, but since the later part of the year I’ve moved into a role in media and communications. I’ve been able to explore filmmaking: Here, and here; to learn Adobe Premier, Illustrator, CSS, and Jquery in-depth; and gain a well-rounded technical skill set for design and commercial art. I’ll post some current projects soon. Our spring fundraising concert this year, playing at the end of April, is based on Gospel-music theme, which has been fun to design for.
My career has taken a slight turn, but it’s very and allows me to use both my technical and artistic gifts to serve in a very tangible way.
I’ll leave you with the mission of New City Kids: ”Loving Kids for Change: Using the arts, learning, and leading to transform the lives of urban children.” Come visit. You’ll see that it does just that.
