I am a Towson University Graduate with a BFA in Digital Art + Design. At Towson I was a marketing designer for the Campus Activities and Student Activities teams and created graphics for university events and concerts.
I have always been tech oriented and fascinated with new technology. As a Multimedia Specialist at CadmiumCD my experience in design, tech, and events really comes together.
Ever since I was a young child I have always had an interest in technology. I have memories of playing games on my parents' '92 apple computer and building websites with my friends in middle school. Now I am a 28 year old College of Charleston graduate who spends most of the day navigating apps on my iPhone. Technology is a major part of my everyday life. At CadmiumCD it's my responsibility to make sure our products are as user friendly as possible for our clients.
I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. but moved to Charleston to get my degree in International Business. I now live in Baltimore as of August 2014, where I work at CadmiumCD as a project manager for the mobile app. In my spare time, I love to paint, run with my German Shepherd and spend time with friends and family.
After graduating from Towson State University with a degree in Mass Communications, I began a 17-year career in the financial services industry. During this time, I earned my Masters degree in graphic design from the University of Baltimore, and worked in numerous design and project management roles. I joined CadmiumCD Team as a mobile app project manager on September 1, 2015.
My wife and I have two boys and we live in Forest Hill, MD, just a few miles from CadmiumCD. I stay active volunteering in scouts, coaching, playing slow pitch softball, running, and doing home improvement projects.
I grew up in NJ and moved to Maryland in 1996. I'm married and have 2 wonderful children who make me want to laugh, scream and sometime even cry, but it's all worth it. I love to read when I have time. Watching my kids play Soccer, basketball and softball is another thing I love to do.
My career started in the movies, managing theaters. I started with a twin screen (which no longer exist) and ended my career managing a 17 screen theatre with a restaurant and bar. After 13 years in the theater industry I changed careers and went into banking, I worked as a business banker for a little over 2 years and learned lots of valuable information about managing your money. My husband John and I decided it was time to start a family and I became a stay at home Mom for a few years. About six years ago I started working for CadmiumCD on a part-time bases, from there I became more involved in the project management roll until finally I became a full Project Manager.
I enjoy my position here at CadmiumCD and I am looking forward to working with each and every one of you.
I am a recent graduate from Towson University with a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. At my time at Towson, I worked for the Housing Residence Life Department and loved helping students transition to living away from home for the first time. I found that I loved being behind the scene in the success of those around me. That is why I feel that I have found such a great role on the CadmiumCD team.
I was born and raised in Harford County and spent my school years being homeschooled. I graduated from Walkersville Christian Family Schools in 2010 and began working for a company called Charm City Amusements. I began to make short films with my friends around 2007 and quickly realized my passion for photography around the same time. My long term goal is to become a photographer with my own business. I began working at Cadmium in July, 2014 and am involved on the audio production team. I have learned a great deal while working here and enjoy it very much. When I am not working, my hobbies include photography, making music, being outdoors, and traveling.
After graduating from Towson University with a degree in Mass Communication I began a career as a News & Public Affairs Producer in radio and television. I have over 20 years of project management experience. Working in a news room gave me the experience of working in fast-paced, deadline driven industry.
I'm the father of two wonderful children. I'm active as a Boy Scout leader and I coached rec league lacrosse for over 7 years in addition to holding the position of In-House Commissioner for 2 years. When I had spare time I enjoyed doing most any outdoor activity. I have many leather bound books and my office smells of rich mahogany.
I am a writer, marketer, and web developer who's fallen in love with the events industry. I'm passionate about live events, education, technology, and alternative publishing. In my spare time I hike, travel, and write novels about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
At CadmiumCD I am focused on educating meeting planners about the benefits of event tech. As Marketing Manager I also have the unique pleasure of telling CadmiumCD's ever-growing story.
I'm currently living in Harford County Maryland with my wife and three pets.
When I was in 8th grade, the school gave aptitude tests to find careers students could pursue. My results? I could become a "commercial artist." I had no idea what that meant and I certainly never thought I would become one - but that's just what I did! I attended Ohio University, received my B.F.A. in Graphic Design, moved back home, and started freelancing. When I got married and started a family, being able to work from home and take care of my children was a definite win-win.
I joined Cadmium CD in December 2014 as their graphics production specialist, processing graphics for the Mobile apps and Harvester. One of the things I love about my job, besides the 4-minute commute and the great people I work with, is being able to see all the great conference artwork sent in by our clients and making it available online and on mobile devices.
Amazingly cool - especially for someone whose first computer was a Mac Plus.
I have 18 years of experience in the Meetings and Tradeshow Industry. My background in the Meetings Industry is very diverse. I've worked for Exhibit Houses (Access TCA & Explus), Trade Show Management Company (E.J. Krause), Trade Show Online Community Technology (BDMetrics), the Audio Visual Leader (PSAV) and have run my own consulting business called Joseph Marketing Solutions. As CadmiumCD's Director of Business Development, my main responsibility is to grow our company's client base.
On a personal side, I'm a proud father of two great children, Matt and Hannah. I also have a huge passion for sports. I'm a basketball ref and you'll often find me playing softball and golf. I love to have fun, and my favorite color is blue to match my eyes.
I am a graduate of Towson University where I received a Bachelors of Business Administration degree. I have lived in Maryland all of my life and my family owns a local restaurant where I have worked for over 15 years. The hospitality industry has allowed me grow as a customer service professional and realize that I truly enjoy working directly with clients.
I have also held positions within the admissions and enrollment departments at UNC Chapel Hill and University of Liverpool in the UK. I was able to travel abroad while helping students to achieve their goals. Here I also embraced online technologies for education, training and webinars.
I look forward to working with you!
I first laid hands on a computer back in 1978 as a junior in high school in northeast Ohio. The rather large contraption was an Olivetti P6060 with a built-in thermal printer, 48K of RAM, and a 32 character display. As BASIC as it was, I loved it, and my future in computers was set.
I headed to the mountains of Virginia for college, and in 1984 received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech. After graduation, I spent five years as a software engineer/project manager for a communications company in the Washington D.C. area, and then moved on to a network security start-up in the Baltimore area. After writing firmware for a few years, I became the manager of the engineering department at which point I oversaw all product development. I would eventually move on from engineering, and gained experience in market intelligence and mergers and acquisitions activities. After helping the company grow from 13 to 400 people, I decided it was time for a change. I became a consultant and consulted with another start-up that specialized in software for trade show organizers.
After taking some time off to deal with my ever-growing bucket list, I got the itch to return to high tech. My path would eventually lead me to CadmiumCD.
When I'm not tapping away at a computer, I love being outside. My activities include golf, hiking, kayaking and tugging at weeds in my garden. My indoor hobbies include family history and genetic genealogy, and I'm a rabid Cleveland sports fan...including the Browns. I cry myself to sleep at night during football season.
I enjoy traveling, cooking, reading, and spending time relaxing with my family. I also enjoy watching my kids play sports and listening to them play their instruments. Over the years, I've taught middle school math, studied computer science, tutored, run a photography business, taught preschool, and volunteered in my children's schools and for Relay for Life.
I feel blessed to join the CadmiumCD team, and excited to draw upon the skills I've gained over the years. Most importantly, I look forward to growing and developing as I serve our clients.
I was born and raised in Harford County. I graduated from C. Milton Wright High School in 2013 and now attend Harford Community College for a degree in film studies. In the fall of 2014 I started working for CadmiumCD as a member of the audio production team. I have experience in live sound, audio engineering, and video production. When I'm not working at CadmiumCD I enjoy playing music and video games.
My name is Joe and I am beginning my first year here at CadmiumCD. In 2012, I graduated at Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware with an Undergraduate Degree in Sports Management. At Wilmington I was also fortunate enough to pursue a baseball career at the collegiate level. Within the last few years I worked as a Graduate Assistant in the Athletics department at Stevenson University in Owings Mills, Maryland. At Stevenson I obtained my Graduate Degree in Business Technology Management while working specifically with the day to day operation of the baseball program. I now am a part of the CadmiumCD team and serve as a Project Manager for the Abstract Scorecard.
Originally from Pittsburgh, an NCAA coaching opportunity and education brought me to Baltimore. After earning a Master's Degree in Business Technology Management from Stevenson University, I worked at a large corporation in their Ecommerce business.
Looking for a change, I joined CadmiumCD as a Project Manager on the Abstract Scorecard, and will use my experience to help clients use the Scorecard to effectively meet their needs.
I have over 4 years experience managing software projects focusing on events and continuing education management as well as experience managing various IT service and infrastructure projects around the Washington, D.C area. Originally from South Africa, I graduated from the University of Cape Town with a Bachelor of Business Science Degree in Marketing and received a Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification from the Project Management Institute. At Cadmium, I am project manager for the eventScribe mobile app and Survey Magnet Module.
When away from work, I enjoy coaching and playing soccer, hiking, traveling and fanatically supporting Liverpool F.C.
I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a degree in Business Administration/Information Systems. After college, I worked as an Investment Systems Analyst for Maryland National Bank for 6 years, until I had my first child. As the bank was in the process of being bought out by another bank, it seemed like a good time to stay home with my new daughter. I then went on to have 2 more children (boys) and stayed at home with them for several more years, running them to every practice and event and volunteering as much as possible.
Once my kids were older, I started working for Show Management Solutions (SMS), an independent show organizer in Silver Spring, MD. I started out part time helping with customer support for their client associations and exhibitors and then moved into a full time position as the Manager, Sales & Financial Administration. After working at SMS for almost 10 years, I accepted a Project Manager position with CadmiumCD, which brought me back full circle to working on projects to help bridge the gap between clients and the software they use.
When I'm not working, I love to travel, coerce my husband into taking dance classes with me, and spend time with my 3 almost grown children.
In 2005, I began my studies at Vanderbilt University, where I pursued a Bachlor's of Science in Human and Organizational Development and a Master's in Public Policy. These two degrees allowed me to understand that I truly love communicating and problem solving. After graduating in 2011, I worked in Nashville as a Meeting Contents Manager for an association management company. It was there that I was first introduced to CadmiumCD, utilizing their software to organize and produce conference programs. I moved to Baltimore in 2013 to serve as an Abstract Scorecard Project Manager. I've worked hand-in-hand with clients, ensuring their ability to properly navigate and design the Scorecard to meet their needs. I've transitioned to the role of Sales Manager to help promote the ease-of-use and cost savings that the CadmiumCD platform provides to its clients.
I started working with Cadmium CD in April 2011. I have a background in music, studio recording, and live sound, but my work history is wide and varied; from teaching school, to carpentry, and landscaping. All of these jobs have taught me the value of effiency, quality, and customer satisfaction. These are the same values I bring to my audio production work here at Cadmium CD.
I was born outside of Washington DC and spent most of my early life there before moving to Harford County in 2005. I graduated from C. Milton Wright High School in 2013 and began attending Harford Community College. I have a background in live sound and have played live music since I was in High School. I began working at Cadmium in June 2015 first as an intern before joining the team later that summer. When I'm away from work I enjoy playing music, watching movies and playing with my dog.
My first memories of programming are of writing BASIC on a PET computer I borrowed from school. In my youth I wrote my own versions of my favorite text adventure and graphics games. I stumbled into embedded systems programming in a senior Electrical Engineering design lab and have been doing it professionally for the past 15 years working in Silicon Valley. I began doing work at CadmiumCD in 2004 doing sales and audio recording. Over time I have developed a series of tools the team uses to work more efficiently, including the iPad app. My fondest CadmiumCD memory was doing tech support at ACG 2011 where we launched our first app.
My wife and I live with our baby daughter on the South-West Side of the San Francisco Bay just above San Jose. I enjoy hiking and biking when I am not banging away at code in front of my computer.
In 2009, I began my college career at Harford Community College and later transfered to Towson University where I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. Although it is a broad subject, I took interest specifically in web development and haven't looked back. Soon after graduation, I began my experience with CadmiumCD where I have continued to expand my knowledge and understanding of web programming and the meetings industry.
Outside of work I like to stay active. I've played soccer for the past 15 years and don't plan to give it up any time soon. I enjoy all sports, hiking, music, and spending time with friends. I like to meet new people and so far it has been a great experience getting to know the company and its employees.
I graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Marketing and was ready to face the world. I was lucky enough to be hired by Walt Disney World's College Program in Reservations and continued to work there for an additional year in Attraction Sales. After a year and a half of working for "The Mouse" and spending free time traveling around Florida, my future husband and I returned home to Baltimore.
I then spent 10+ years working for the National Aquarium, traveling and selling the best aquarium on the East Coast. During my time at the Aquarium I got married and had 2 children. I soon realized that traveling and an hour-a-day commute was too much. After a few part time jobs I found my new home at CadmiumCD where I am the "first line of defense," and I'm lucky enough to work 5 minutes from my house.
When you call CadmiumCD you will most likely talk to me first. I will always help you with a smile, get you an answer, or find you the person you need!
I graduated from Towson University in the 90's with a Bachelor Degree in Accounting, then went on to the University of Baltimore for my Master in Accounting. I'm very proud to say that I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. For a time, I was a Senior Accountant at a healthcare company and the Accounting Manager at a University.
I quit working after I had my third child to be a stay-at-home mom. After some time away from my career, I started working part-time at CadmiumCD doing accounting and payroll.
I am an Emmy award winning video/audio production specialist with a background in journalism. I graduated from the University of Miami, FL with a BS in Broadcast Journalism and a BA in English. I've worked for NBC, FOX, ABC, and others. Through my camera, I have shot a Super Bowl, dozens of NFL games, the Oscars, and the final launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis. I've interviewed First Lady Michelle Obama, Maya Angelou, Cal Ripken, and Tiger Woods. Currently, I live with my family outside Baltimore and thoroughly enjoy burritos and pretzels.
I received my Master of Science Degree in Chemistry at Northern Illinois University and began working at an international chemical company called DSM, where I developed coatings for the optical fiber industry. During that time I received 6 patents but ultimately decided to move out of the laboratory and into marketing and sales. I earned my MBA at Depaul University in Chicago and became the Global Marketing Manager for a group developing materials for the 3D printing industry...before 3D printing was famous!
I left my career in chemicals in 2008 to become a stay at home mother but realized I wasn't suited for that role, nobody liked my cooking except for my dog! I began working for CadmiumCD in 2009 and have enjoyed seeing the product line grow. It's a great company that focuses on improving the meeting planning process and attendee experience.
My passion is helping clients determine the right mix of products that will help them meet their education or meeting objectives. I want my clients to look good to their stakeholders whether it's their boss, an attendee or a member.
Computers and I have always been a great duo. Either gaming with friends and family, or just playing with simple programs to see what I could get the computer to do. Now, with my Computer Science degree from James Madison University, I get to tell a computer what to do and how to do it programmatically. Designing a program and figuring out how best to make a program work is quite a fun activity for me. I continue to learn new ideas with my continuing education with online learning and reading computer science books. The internet is a wealth of information and I take advantage of it daily.
While programming on Android devices for CadmiumCD is not my full time job, I do spend a great deal of time on it. Almost daily I make tweaks to improve performance, improve the code, or add new features. I am glad to be on a team that strives for excellence in all aspects of what they do.
Before I was lucky enough to be a part of the CadmiumCD family, I was the Internal Communication Specialist for IKEA's US Contact Center and Human Resources Service center for 8 of my 12 years there. In that job, I was able to realize my passion of working with and helping others, and to hone my communication and hosting skills through training and education.
I currently reside in Bel Air which is not far from my parents who reside in Aberdeen and whom I absolutely adore. In my free time I love to watch cartoons, cook, clean, spend time with friends and family, watch the Olympics and any updates or coverage about the Olympics, and take a nap whenever I can.
Growing up, I was the creative and boisterous kid who was always into something. Born and raised on a horse farm in Harford County, I did the typical farm kid stuff - summer camp, Pony Club, helping with barn chores- and of course, I excelled at being awesome.
School was always a top priority for my family. In 2003, I received my Associates in Graphic Design from Harford Community College; in 2005, my Bachelor's in Graphic Design from Radford University, Virginia; and in 2012, my Master's degree in Communications from Notre Dame of Maryland University.
In 2005, I was hired as a contract graphic designer for Aberdeen Proving Ground. In February 2008, I was transitioned to a permanent federal employee, becoming the fourth generation working for the proving ground. In July of 2014, I made the leap from federal employee to freelance graphic designer and in December 2014, I joined the CadmiumCD team.
I am a graduate from the University of Kentucky with a degree is Hospitality Management and Tourism. I am from the Baltimore area and currently reside in Federal Hill Baltimore. I have worked in DC for the past 4 years as a third party corporate event planner. I have managed events anywhere from 10-2,500 people for corporate companies' meetings, conferences, galas, dinners, transportation, etc. I love working with people and am extremely passionate about my clients and their events.
My experience has led me to CadmiumCD where I am very excited to be Client Experience Manager. I am here to help onboard our clients and provide assistance during their planning process.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, relaxing, trying different types of cuisine, and traveling.
My family moved to Maryland in December of 2014 for my husband's job relocation. My working career has revolved around all aspects of conference, meeting and tradeshow management. I have been fortunate to work as a conference manager for Smith Bucklin DC and Conferon (which is now known as Experient.) My degree is from West Virginia University in textile design which has always been passionate hobby of mine. I have two wonderful kiddos, an extremely athletic boy and an exceptionally bright young lady. I am particularly excited to join the talented Project Management team at CadmiumCD and hope that my perspective of a meeting planner will be an asset to our clients.
Prior to starting at cadmiumCD as a Project Manager I was an association management professional in the DC area for over 10 years. I started at the National Association for Home Care and Hospice as an Executive Assistant, moved on to Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging as a Senior Program Manager and then was the Director of Programs and Operations at American Concrete Pressure Pipe Association. When my family and I moved to the Baltimore area I was thrilled to find CadmiumCD. I have a bachelor's degree from Roanoke College.
Outside of the office, I spend time with my husband and two young, fun, energetic children.
I am not your average developer. Growing up with a father that was a mechanic and a mother that worked for a long time in a daycare I learned just about everything you can possibly imagine. I loved to take things apart and sometimes succeed at putting them back together. I was forever running in the woods and bringing new critters home to tend to. My father taught me at an early age to fix things rather then replace them. Toasters, driers, cars, etc. To this day I can fix just about anything and have helped build a house from the ground up. I can also operate and repair just about all heavy equipment and I am capable of driving a dump truck.
My grandfather gave me and my brother an ADAM computer when I was 8 years old. I tinkered with it and wrote my first program when I was 8. It just printed "Cat, Dog, Mouse" to the screen over and over and over. But from there my ability to code took off. In Middle School, working in an Apple 2e, I wrote a small program that fooled the other classmates into thinking that I was assessing their grades. In 1994 I purchased my first Desktop computer with money left to me after my grandfather passed.
In 1996 I started working for a small computer shop and my career flourished from there. In 2000 I started working for a federal contract and continued moving to other contracts for 16 years, ranging from Desktop support, to Sr NOC operations engineer to Application Development.
I live in Harford Co Maryland with my son and many critters. My son and I are both Eagle Scouts.
My 41 years of marriage have been blessed with two sons and a daughter, now grown, and four grandsons. I have a Bachelor of Science in Education from West Chester University and a Masters of Education from Temple University. As an educator for 40 years, 28 of those years as a full-time classroom teacher, my main teaching assignments were Algebra and high school Art.
Water activities and swimming instruction have been part of my life since I was a young child. Oddly enough, my association with this part-time work in 2005 led to the meeting of Michelle Wyatt and her sons at swimming lessons, and ultimately to my relationship with CadmiumCD.
During the eleven years I have worked with CadmiumCD, I have performed most of the tasks needed to produce conference proceedings (archival, audio, and/or online). Basically, I have worked through aspects of the start to finish process of producing Cadmium products. I am mostly part of the Audio Project Production team, but also work with single webinar project clients and the Survey Magnet product.
One of the aspects I enjoy about my work with Cadmium is that I still help to provide educational opportunities to people, not in a classroom, but in the form of online continuing education. Although my professions have categorized me as a 'teacher,' I consider myself a 'learner enthusiast' which is certainly satiated daily at CadmiumCD in both the cultivation of my computer technology responsibilities and the amount of conference information I process!
Outside of work, I spend my time with my family, and participate in as many outdoor activities as possible. We enjoy kayaking, gardening, woodworking and games. I also instruct a class of Aqua Cardio-Fitness at a local club.
In 2009 I received my AA degree in Computer Information Systems from Harford Community College. I then transferred to Towson University where I graduated in 2013 with my Bachelors degree in Computer Information Technology. I worked as a computer technician and a junior network administrator prior to joining the CadmiumCD development team. I have always had an interest in how websites and applications were designed and I enjoy making everything as efficient for the users as possible.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time in my craft room where I can be found drawing or making miniature figurines from polymer clay. I also love being outside, exploring, and photographing abandoned buildings which I edit later in photoshop.
I was someone who never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up because I had too many interests! I loved music, art and history but was not quite sure how to make a living in any of these fields. I ended up going to Cedarville College and majoring in Broadcasting with minors in Art and Bible. My thinking was to work at a radio station or recording studio; however, I quickly fell in love with the computer in my room and this strange new thing called the World Wide Web! My second semester, I decided to expand my major so that I could still learn audio recording and editing but also learn web development, television production, and graphic design. I graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Multimedia Technologies. After graduation, I worked several jobs in retail, and as a wedding invitation designer, administrative assistant, and web designer.
In October, 2010, I began working at CadmiumCD. I started out doing post-production work as an audio/video editor. About a year and a half later, I added processing content for both the online Poster Gallery and the Mobile Note Taking App to my job description. Last year, I began to work on the Interactive Floor Plan as well. Currently, my main job responsibility is customizing the Itinerary Planner and Proceedings to fit client needs. Frequently, I get the opportunity to travel onsite to help clients by supporting their mobile app, which I love! My job responsibilities are always changing and I really do enjoy learning new things. CadmiumCD is always creating new and better products and changing their current products so they're easier to use.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful daughters, Aislinn and Aibrean. I also enjoy playing music, reading, camping, watching movies, working outside in my yard, antiques and old houses.
I grew up in a musical family in Tehran, the capital city of Iran. Naturally I received my diploma from the Tehran School of Music with French Horn as my primary instrument. I eventually continued my education in the United States and received two Bachelor of Music degrees in Music Performance and Composition from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University.
Even though I was heavily involved with music, I quickly realized that design was something I was extremely passionate about so I started designing websites for individuals and small businesses. After many years of freelancing, I joined CadmiumCD's team as a designer and developer in the summer of 2010.
In my personal life, I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Information Technology. When I am not coding or studying, I enjoy playing the Horn, composing music, and mastering my latte art skills.
Hi, my name is Cody Sherman, and I began working at CadmiumCD in March 2016, working in the production department as an Audio Technician. I went to college at Salisbury University on the eastern shore of Maryland, where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Communications with a minor in Film Studies. In my free time I am a big music fan and multiinstrumentalist, playing primarily drums as well as guitar, bass, and ukulele. My love for film has carried over from my college years as well, and I still enjoy watching and studying all kinds of films, with some of my favorite directors being Scorsese, Kubrick, and Lynch. In addition, I also enjoy reading, cooking, and following various sports in my free time!
I've loved technology since I was a kid and started in the IT field professionally about 18 years ago with the Y2K "crisis". I was looking for an entry level job in the technology field and came across a rather unique opportunity to attend a Y2K boot camp where I would learn how to fix the code that was going to stop working at midnight on January 1, 2000.
After several weeks of training, I started working for the education company that provided the boot camp. I spent the next 3 and a half years there learning several different programming languages and working on projects completely unrelated to any Y2K issues. While working full time I attended college part time in the evenings and obtained my degree.
During my career I've learned 17 programming languages, implemented and supported several networks, worked on a help desk (writing the software and answering calls), and managed and designed multiple database and web servers. I've worked in several different industries, from food science to government contracting, where I had the opportunity to lead development teams and be the IT point of contact for a nationwide sales team.
Now that I'm at CadmiumCD I look forward to offering my experience and expertise to improve all of our applications; from adding features that all of our users will see and enjoy, to implementing my knowledge of database design to improve performance and speed so that, as we grow, our users always have the fastest access to their data.
In high school I took a serious interest to art and photography. My primary passion was photography, but after being introduced to Graphic Design, I realized this was the career path I wanted to pursue. I transferred from Harford Community College after studying there for two years, and went on to receive a BFA in Graphic Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2012.
During college, I grew especially fond of the digital and web-based side of Graphic Design. The summer before I graduated, I began a Designer Internship at CadmiumCD. As a result, CadmiumCD offered me a full-time position in January of 2013, which I gladly accepted!
In my free time, I'm usually creating my own art projects. In addition to design, I like working with 3D Animation, Game Design, and Photography. I love animals, and have two dog-children. My other hobbies include video games, music and concerts, and being outdoors.
I am a Maryland native and graduate of Stevenson University with a degree in Business Administration.
My past experience in customer service and account management has provided me with the skills to deliver exceptional service and organization in all of my interactions.
I am an avid equestrian with a passion for being outdoors. I love to work with horses, but my other interests include hiking, snowboarding, and gardening.
I graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelors Degree in Chemical Engineering and began working for DuPont in a New Business Initiative called Somos, the name of a chemical used in 3D Rapid Prototyping. Shortly after joining, the Somos business was acquired by a large European chemical company called DSM. As a Sales Engineer at Somos, I went to numerous events where I observed how conference education was managed and delivered. While working on my MBA at the University of Maryland, my husband, Peter Wyatt, and I launched CadmiumCD. CadmiumCD's first clients included events that I exhibited at while at Somos, and they remain customers today, fourteen years later.
As a founding partner at CadmiumCD, I am responsible for the sales, marketing, accounting and HR functions at the company. I work with and talk to over 100 meeting planners a year about the goals and challenges in managing and distributing content for their meetings.
I am also the mother of two boys and actively involved in Boy Scouts.
I started programming when I was in middle school by writing programs that played music (one note per line of code!). By high school I was maxing out the memory on my graphing calculator by programming games. You would think I would have pursued a degree in IT, but I was focused on making as much money as possible with only a 4 year degree ... so in 1996 I received a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware.
I then went on to work for 13 years at Procter and Gamble in the cosmetics division (Cover Girl and Max Factor brands). I worked on some very talented teams that developed new mascara and lipcolor products (Covergirl Outlast lipcolor and Covergirl Lastblast Mascara). Somewhere in the middle of all that I found my way back to IT as Michelle (my wife and business partner) and I established CadmiumCD. We focused first on websites and then stumbled into producing Conference Proceedings.
I quit my promising career at P&G in 2009 and forged ahead full time with CadmiumCD.
Born and raised in the suburbs between Princeton and Rutgers University in the great state of New Jersey, I lived there the first 22 years of my life. I had malls, a few major cities, and the beach all an hour drive away and what did I want to do? Stay inside and create things. All my life I have had an artistic bent, and it wasn't until I discovered what a hot glue gun was, that I fully appreciated what it felt like to build something from nothing. Give me some cardboard boxes, paint, and a hot glue gun and I'm unstoppable.
I graduated Towson University in the fall of 2014 with a BFA in Digital Art and Design and was able to take a wide variety of creative courses while there. This included a few html and web design classes, and I realized there was so much more to the websites I frequented every day than just the colors and things to click on. Somebody built those websites. Suddenly, all that scary code was no longer that scary. It was just another problem to solve and play with.
When I'm not knuckle deep in glue or tangled in string, I usually have my nose in a book or out hiking with friends. Recently, I've discovered a love of traveling and now I'm making it my mission to fill up my passport with stamps from all corners of the world.
