Get inspired with me.
Hello. My name is Angela.
I work full-time for a Catholic evangelization apostolate, designing print and web materials, maintaining our social media presence, co-producing (occasionally hosting) a weekly Catholic TV/radio show, and mentoring college students through our Media + Ministry internship program. (Inspired Angela blog is personal, and does not represent my employers.)
Prior to my recent wedding, I was Angela Santana. I blogged at Catholic Media Girl, ran a graphic/web design apostolate, and helped inspire Brandon Vogt’s groundbreaking book, The Church and New Media. Through private requests, I continue to work toward excellence in the Church’s new media communications with Catholic organizations who need guidance and/or production assistance.
My free time is spent with husband Dan, who inspires me. Other treats: classic rock, making art, reading, and hot tea.
Hope you enjoy this collection. Peace to you.
