About Me
How did I get interested in web development?

As a high school sophomore, I still had no idea what I wanted to do in the future. I was interested in video games, and really enjoyed the cinematic cutscenes like those found in the Final Fantasy series. So, I decided to take an elective class in computer graphics. We learned how to use Photoshop, Illustrator, and drawing and animation in Flash. However, one of my classmates was actually programming basic games in Flash, and I quickly became interested. Thus began my first experience with programming, learning Actionscript.

From that point on, I continued studying computer graphics, but began taking computer science classes as well. Throughout the rest of high school, I learned HTML, javascript and visual basic. Wanting to pursue a career that would combine all of these interests together, I decided to major in the Interactive Multimedia program at The College of New Jersey, while also taking on a computer science minor.

What else am I interested in?

Besides web development and digital media, I am also very interested in Japanese language and culture, having level N2 certification on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. I am also a practicing brown belt of Kokikai Aikido.
