I was fortunate to be able to study at UC Berkeley with a full scholarship from the university for the entire duration of my undergraduate studies. In the first 2 years of my undergrad, I took classes with the intent to major in CS however in the last 2 years, I switched over to majoring in CogSci and minoring in CS to gain a comprehensive background in all things tech & design. In May 2015, I graduated from Cal with a B.A. in Cognitive Science, and a minor in Computer Science.

School of Visual Development
M.A. Visual Development
1 graduate semester completed, 2015 - 2016
I attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco briefly in Fall 2015 completing a semester towards an MA in Visual Development. While taking classes at AAU, I was also working full-time to cover some financial costs of the program. After a semester, I chose not to continue taking classes due to expenses but I learned a great deal on visual design aesthetics and how to make things pleasing to the eye.
