International Business Studies & Computer Science
Canyons Promise, Honors Program
Associate in Computer Science & Business Administration
Film Club, Honor Roll
I’m a college student currently studying International Business and Computer Science at the University of California, San Diego.
During my two years in community college (College of the Canyons), I earned an Associate in Computer Science and an Associate in Business Administration.
For a long time, my main focus was film. Filmmaking has always been a hobby of mine, even from a very young age. I’ve always gravitated more towards production (behind the camera), and post production, hence my interest in video editing and cinematography. I have taken film courses, joined clubs, and traveled for conventions. However, over the last five years, my attention has shifted towards computer science, information technology, and business.
Being involved with film and cinematography over the years I have learned all about cameras and shooting techniques that can also be translated over to photography. From time to time, I enjoy going out and taking pictures. I really like macro and portrait photography.
Over the years, I have ventured into different fields with my hobbies. Since 2012, I have founded and managed multi-player game communities, introducing myself to the world of java add-on configurations, online web stores, and community management. In 2016, I had the opportunity to create a YouTube channel that was able to achieve thousands of subscribers and hundreds of thousands of views. In 2017, I dipped my feet into the world of web and dedicated server hosting and reselling, SEO and marketing, and other aspects of business. Most recently, in 2019, I co-founded a network that manages online sport communities.
