About Alexis Cruz

Welcome

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)

I am going to be posting anything and everything that I do. This website is going to have a lot of pictures, video, and written work.

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.

Currently

 I am a 21-year-old from Lincoln Nebraska. I graduated from Lincoln High school after completing the International Baccalaureate Program where I received my International Baccalaureate Diploma.

I am currently an undergraduate student at Drake University in Des Moines. I am pursuing degrees in Digital Media Production and History. I am also pursuing minors in Computer Science and Spanish.

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:

To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; credible we must be truthful – Edward R. Murrow

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
