Year in School:
Graphic Design then Business Management
FIDM Campus and Start Date:
Los Angeles and San Francisco, Summer 2013
Tell us a bit about yourself. I love anything art, anything sports, and anything social. I spend mostly all of my time at school, whether it be for sports, ASB, art-related, clubs, and all sorts of school events. A huge chunk of my time is spent with the cross country, basketball, and track teams, as well as a few of the clubs I am a part of, such as ASB, NHS, and the BBC (a spirit club), at my school, that was voted most spirited school in the nation.
As for art, I’ve always loved to get as much experience in the art world as I can, making anything from custom shoes, shirts, bikes, logos, illustrations, graffiti, backdrops, sets, canvases, murals, ceramics, to home décor.
What are your proudest accomplishments so far?
My proudest accomplishments art-wise have been the street art campaign a friend and I have started in my town, as well as my freelance company, that has helped me expand my ranges in art and taken weight financially off my parents' backs.
What made FIDM right for you?
Describe your entrance project.
For my entrance project, I created a fixed gear cycling shop, making a catalog cover, a magazine ad, and various logos for it, inspired mostly by street-cultured biking.
What are your career goals?
I would like to build up a design company and work with various clients on all types of mediums and materials, and own a studio to fund relief work and projects overseas to third world and less fortunate countries.
What do you expect to learn at FIDM?
To obtain the tools necessary to be a more creative and have a keen eye for everything around me, while sharpening my skills and understanding of graphic design, fashion, and the world of commercial art.
