Hello, my name is Elizabeth Pedraza. In August of 2017, I completed my Master of Arts Degree in Digital Communication and Media Arts at DePaul University. Now, I am working full-time at WQAD Channel 8 News in Moline, IL. Although I spend a lot of my time in the studio working on live broadcasts, I still find time to work on small side projects of my own that I am passionate about.
During my undergraduate years, I was able to take many courses where I specialized with working in the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite software. As I started full-time work, these skills have strengthened as my position requires me to work with Photoshop and After Effects. In addition, I have become skilled in working with Final Cut Pro for editing broadcast video for my job. These skills have allowed me to focus on a variety of areas in Digital Media. I plan to continue to perfect these skills as I continue my full-time work in broadcast.
