My name is Caitlin O'Connell, I'm a 25 year old filmmaker/journalist with a love of technology and sports. I enjoy taking pictures and writing in my spare time as well as watching old movies, especially anything by Alfred Hitchcock. I've been using Adobe InDesign since 2007 and Photoshop since 2008. While working for the weekly newspaper, Eagle News, I learned how to be a journalist and what that means in today's changing media hungry society. I attended conferences in Miami, FL and Austin, TX learning about leadership as well as layout and design. I also worked with Anton Majeri to redesign the school's newspaper. I transferred to the University of Florida where I studied telecommunications and political science, while studying I learned how to use Final Cut Pro 7 and made one short film. It is my ambition to work in the media industry as a journalist or help write and create movies and television shows. I enjoy working with people in large groups and by myself and would enjoy any opportunities to learn and grow within these fields.
