My name is Julie Knapp. I just graduated this Summer 2013 with a degree in New Media Communications. I cannot wait to see where the next step of my life takes me.
I grew up in a small town outside of Portland, Oregon with my mom, dad and older brother. It's a beautiful city. The "weird city" has a lot of life to offer and so many amazing resources. If you've never visited here, I highly recommend it! You can be in the heart of downtown Portland then at the mountain, beach or in the dry desert like cities of the eastern border in a matter of a couple hours.
In my free time, I love to be with friends and family. I like to do things that challenge me too and try to do things that push me often. I love to snowboard, although I'm not very good. And movies I think are the best way to stir your emotions. Hiking is a wonderful pastime around Portland, and wanderlust is definitely a real thing. I completed a triathlon with friends from all over the world in Malibu, California which is pretty cool and one of the best experiences of my life. Portland has some pretty amazing teams to follow, I enjoy going to sporting events with friends in my free time as well (Go Beavs, Go 'Zers and Go Timbers!). I like art, creativity and good conversation; some of the best learning tools I've got! I've always wanted to make a documentary and I envy those who have, just something about immersing yourself into something you find interesting sounds pretty cool to me.
To be honest, I'm really excited to finally start using my education in the real world. It's fun when you figure out what you like to do the most. You never really have to work a day in your life when you are doing what you love. I'm passionate about every aspect of New Media, I could find myself working in anything digitally creative, really. My sights aren't set on one specific place at this moment, it's the innovation and creativity I crave.
Welcome to my site! This page is intended to give future employers a better look at who I am and what I've done. By doing so, hopefully they'll see me as a great fit for their company. I'd also like this site to be a great way to show friends and family what projects I've been working on and where I've been committing my time. A little bit professional, with a little bit of personality. Why can't the two mix?
