Jaclyn Wiley
Jaclyn WileyAssistant Lead Tutor
Hi, everyone. I’m a sophomore studying Commercial Space Operations. Most of my experience is from my internship and subsequent employment at a radio station in Sarasota. I started out as a technical producer intern, but was eventually promoted to a full paid producer.  I look forward to working with you all.
Kody Miller
Kody MillerTutor, Webmaster, Head of IT
I am currently a Sophomore studying Mechanical Engineering with a planned specialization in Robotics. Aside from earning my Mechanical Engineering degree and learning languages, I plan to minor in computer science since I find programming to be somewhat enjoyable (when the programs work as intended). I’ve worked with various types of software ranging from Photoshop to Sony Vegas in my lifetime and thus find myself right at home amongst the elite team at the studio.

I’m Jack, not the lead tutor of the Digital Studio. I’m best in Photoshop but also good in whatever other software we have here. Eventually I’m going to be a software engineer. The camera adds 10 pounds but Photoshop removes 20!

Hello, I’m Elsa! Although Astronomy/Astrophysics is my major, graphic design is my passion. I’m also getting minors in Applied Mathematics and Humanities. I’ve worked with Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, and other computer software. I can especially help with the visual elements of your project.

That’s a candid me, Tate. I am technically a sophomore and I am pursuing Civil Engineering at Embry-Riddle. Besides building bridges and digging holes, I also dabble with digital design and software such as Premiere Pro and Photoshop.
