Looking for Opportunities
My name is Aaron Garcia, I graduated Magnum Cum Laude from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, TX. I majored in Communication Arts and have aquired many skills, including but not limited to: video production, photography, social media marketing, WordPress, graphic design and desktop publishing. I am familiar with copyright law, Objective-C, Linux, HTML, CSS and Python (took a free, 1 day, introductory course). I believe I can learn anything.
