My Skills


Category: Music
I've been playing piano since I was 5, but really started taking it seriously during my sophomore year of high school. I decided to pursue the instrument at the college level, and in 2007, graduated from Drake University with a degree in Music and Business.

I started playing guitar when I was 13. I took lessons for a little while with the same guy that was teaching me piano at the time, but ended up learing most of what I know by myself. While attending Drake University, guitar was my minor instrument, and I played with the Drake University Guitar Ensemble. I've also played with several different bands, so my experience spans from rock to classical.

Personal/Commercial Banker

Category: Business
I started working at American Trust & Savings Bank in October of 2006. The president of the bank was a regular at a local coffee shop that I was working at and decided that I would be a good addition to his team. So he offered me a job as a teller. I worked there for 9 months before leaving to go teach English in China for a year. But looking toward my return to America, the president of the bank offered me a position as his assistant with the prospects of getting into commerical lending and credit analysis

Category: Language / Translation
In August of 2007, I began a year-long job as a foreign ESL teacher in Handan, Hebei, China. During my stay there, I had the opportunity to pick up a decent amount of the language, enough to get me around and translate for my mom and sister when they visited. I am now pursuing a continued education in the language.
