Why work at NYIT?
My educational background is in the tech and design fields, which are both present at NYIT-Manhattan. It's a good opportunity to be in an environment where I can relate to students.
What are your daily job tasks?
My days have not gotten to the typical stuff yet. Right now it's all about getting preparedspreading the word to faculty, staff, and students that the NYIT Bookstore is under new management by Follett and explaining our way of processing their orders.
Proudest career achievement
Advancing to my current position. I started at Follett as a rush temp and worked my way up to assistant manager.
Favorite tech gadget
My iPad mini because it comes in handy just about everywhere I go. At work it keeps me organized, so I'm always on top of what I need to do and get done.
Dan Brown's Inferno.
Visiting museums and following designers on Tumblr and Pinterest. I like to check out new design techniques and practice a few to keep my creative engine running.
