Hi, I’m Alexis Cruz and welcome to my about page. Feel free to look around, below you’ll find out all about who I am and why I love doing what I do.
Who I am
Student. Historian. Producer. Photographer. Twin. Mexican-American. Animal-Lover.
Why I am Here
This launched spring 2017 to showcase what I do. I originally had a wordpress.com but decided to transition to a wordpress.org website. This allowed me greater freedom to prove my abilities and who I am. This site will be growing and changing as time goes on and as I develop my skills as a web designer and blogger.
What this is going to be about (& maybe why you are here)
It will also show what I have been up to in school and any internships I am currently involved with. You can expect posts about what I’ve learned, opportunities I’ve come across, and anything I find interesting in my chosen fields. Who knows, maybe you’ll get an idea for something that you are involved in or inspiration from a project I’ve worked on. If you have any questions about anything on my site at all please feel free to contact me.
During Summer 2017 I participated in a video production internship with the Lincoln Saltdogs. I also interned with the Nebraska Historical Society. I helped to archive 3/4 inch video of Nebraska entertainment reporter Leta Powell Drake.
During Fall 2017, I accepted a new job to work on the production crew as part of Drake Athletic Marketing. The cool thing about this is that depending on where we are shooting I will sometimes be working for ESPN-3.
Three Quotes I Live by:

Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography. – George Eastman
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again. -Maya Angelou
