Assistant Director of Student Services
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Education: B.A. Film Studies, UC Berkeley
What I did/experiences before Cal? I always knew that I would go to college, but I didn't know what I wanted to major in, so I worked in television production soon after graduating from high school. I spent a few years at a small production company, and later at a major sports television network where I worked as a production scheduler in charge of managing the schedules of the freelance production crew to meet the broadcast needs of the network. My work in television inspired me to pursue a degree in Film, and I spent a few years working full-time while going to community college in the evenings. I was accepted to UC Berkeley as a transfer student in 2007, and I have been here ever since.
Interests: photography, abstract art, french new wave films, reading (Haruki Murakami is a favorite), running, sushi, persimmons, exploring new music, traveling, the occasional Netflix binge

Advisor Tip: It can be challenging to figure out the next 5-10 (or more!) years of your life, so focus on the best next step for you to take, and then figure out what the best next step is from there. Always keep an open mind. The best opportunities tend to come up when you're least expecting them.
