About Alex

I grew up in Milford, CT and, after graduating high school, moved to Reading, PA to go to school at Albright College.  I graduated in 2011 with a B.A. in Digital Media and Spanish and moved back to Milford to work as an HR and Finance Associate at a local staffing company, Aquinas Consulting.  After a year, I decided to continue my education in media by pursuing my master’s degree in Interactive Media at Quinnipiac University.

Unfortunately, I knew that Connecticut was too expensive a state to live in, so when the opportunity came, I moved down to Winter Haven, FL with a friend who would be working as a high school physics teacher in a nearby town.  I took a risk with the move and found myself struggling through the painful job search process.  Luckily, after a few months, I took a job as an Academic Program Specialist in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida, a job which I love.

My ultimate goal is to work in the field of online education and instructional design.  In what little free time I have, I like to read, draw, cook and be outside as much as possible.

    Wow, it must be beautiful living down there, and your job sounds so cool! Your point about living with your friend who was a teacher in Florida might just be a perfect segue into why you are writing about education. Were there specifics that your friend talked about that made you feel this way? Were you able to shadow her or attend any events with her? Including these experiences in your about me will give you a personal touch and contribute significantly to your credibility.

    I’m glad things worked out for you. I completely know the feeling about living in Connecticut. Were you or are you involved with Digital Media outside of working at USF? Is there anything specific in online education that you want to concentrate on? Why are you interested in instructional design? These are things your audience would definitely be interested in learning about you.
