Understanding how to build web sites in middle school and high school led me toward interests in graphic design and art in general. Throughout and after college, I continued to expand my technical skills, as well as my knowledge and practice of art, in an effort to create unique online media. In a similar course, I at some point felt compelled to educate myself about the technical side of photography, from camera technology and operation, to lens designs and their different applications.
Having started off my career in high school as a freelance web developer, I had the opportunity to enhance my education at UCLA. During and after school, I continued to evolve as a freelance developer and creative consultant, while concurrently venturing into the world of marketing agencies and in-house marketing. This critical experience led me to some significant discoveries about how work gets done in various environments, and what clients and managers can expect from each scenario.
