Professional focus: Teach Media Arts, Honors Studio Art Digital. This encompasses 3D modeling, coding, illustration, graphic design, online shop management, website design, videography, animation, photo modification and social media management. I also coordinate yearbook and serve as lead class advisor for VWS Class of 2023.
Scholarly or professional activities: I maintain several online shops that regularly sell Crypto Park Service and Dawdlers Mountaineering Co. merchandise – two outdoorsy brands I’ve developed over the past few years. A few times a year, I open commissions to sell personalized illustrations online. I’m also in the very early stages of drafting a graphic novel with the hope of eventually finding a publisher.
Grew up: Long Beach, California
Favorite spot at Webb: My favorite spot at Webb is probably my front patio, or maybe the front room of the Webb House.
Favorite music or musician: My favorite band is Led Zeppelin and I like pretty much anything that sounds like them. That, and bluesy jam stuff like the Black Keys.
Favorite book or author: This is much, much, much too big a question to answer. I like adventure, historical fiction and historical novels. Think Alexandre Dumas and Jane Austen and anything reminiscent of that. Totally escapist, with great costumes and high drama.
Favorite TV show or movie: I love anything and everything by the Coen Brothers, but particularly The Big Lebowski.
Saturday routine: My typical Saturday is sleep in, coffee and video games, chores, nap, visit/chat with friends and family, Netflix and draw, read, go to bed late.
