I believe in always learning. It’s a must in today’s day and age. You’ll often find me reading about or listening to podcasts about technology, music and business. Throughout my life I’ve always followed the latest trends in pop-culture and I’m really a kid (or young adult) at heart.
I have a Bachelors in, New Media Studies, from the University of Hawaii, a self created major combining courses from the art, telecommunications, video production, music and education technology departments. I’ve also obtained multiple Certificates of Completion from Pacific New Media held at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu for website and video production as well as a Certificate of Completion from lynda.com for Mobile Web Essentials.
