College and major: I’m still enrolled at the University of Rhode Island. I got my Bachelors in 2011 in Communications and Art with a minor in Business, and now I’m working on my Master’s in Communications.
Job responsibilities: I deal with mainly our social media outputs, so that includes the blog, Facebook, and Twitter. I also research and compose the research reports we put out.
Favorite part of the job: There really aren’t resources out there for students that help them find an off-campus apartment, find roommates, or that help them make more informed decisions about off-campus living. I feel like JumpOffCampus fills that need, and it’s cool to be a part of that.
Favorite type of music: I’m really into RI local bands. I also listen to a lot of indie rock/pop stuff like Miike Snow and Does It Offend You, Yeah? Overall, I think my favorite, though, is Jimi Hendrix.
Favorite TV shows: I just finished catching up on Modern Family. I really like NBC shows like The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Community.
Favorite movies: My favorite movie of all time is Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart. I generally tend to like anything with those two in it. I also really enjoy the new Batman movies.
Hobbies: I like painting, drawing, and photography. I also really enjoy listening to music, finding new bands/artists, and going to see shows.
Favorite saying: I totally ripped Nike off, but I live by the saying, “Just Do It.” It really applies to everything.
