Digital Minerva Blog

When I started working for Digital Minerva in early May 2019, I started a company blog to circulate helpful information for our clients, and increase traffic to our site. I write each story for the blog and have been responsible for all of its content. I've covered topics from helpful information about heading tags, to why taking a break is important, to why web development is like "Game of Thrones" (my personal favorite).

Raccoon Infestation

Written in Spring 2019 for my SMAD Script Writing course. Our final project was to select an existing sitcom and write a brand new episode, the plot of our episode had to be completely original but written in the style of the sitcom, so that it would fit seamlessly into the show. So I wrote an episode of "Parks and Recreation" in which the town deals with a raccoon infestation. For this script I recieved the highest grade in the class, 96%.
