My name is Karli Jaenike, and I hope to graduate in May with a degree in mass communication (emphasis on public relations) and a minor in psychology. I would like to go into the music event production/promotion fields, and maybe help put on music festivals and shows. I grew up in Harlingen, which is in the Rio Grande Valley, on the very tip of Texas.
In my spare time I like to go watch live music, and I'm slightly obsessed with music festivals. Some of my favorites last year were the Kerrville Folk Fest, Wakarusa, Flipside, and Nocturnal Festival. I'd love to hit New Orleans Jazz Fest this year! I also like to go to the river (when weather permits), hula hoop, paint, do yoga, hang out with my friends, and cook. I've met some of the most wonderful people in the San Marvelous/Austin area, and I plan on sticking around for a while after I graduate.
I hope to learn a lot from this class, because I've seen how important it is in today's world to have web design skills. I've been meaning to learn HTML for years, I just never got around to it. Now is my chance!
