    I have over nine years of educational experience, including titles such as dean of academic affairs, full-time faculty, and director of media. Industry companies I worked for include PBS, Red Giant Studios, Mendez Foundation, and Pixellex Studio. I currently have a digital personal called Academic Phoenix, where I create digital tutorials. I currently have more than 36,000 subscribers. I have a B.A. in studio arts and digital media and a minor in astronomy from the University of Virginia. I also have an M.F.A. in animation from Savannah College of Art and Design. I currently work as an instructor at Ohlone College. Originally from the east coast, I’ve lived in Virginia, Florida, Georgia, and now my home state California. I also lived outside of the States in Italy, Spain, and Colombia. I was a costume designer and seamstress for operas in Italy. I was Geoffrey the Giraffe for Toys R Us and published a short story about my experience. I am a certified scuba diver, and my favorite spot to dive is the Florida Keys. I also completed two triathlons and volunteered with the Girl Scouts and Reading Partners. In my free time, I mountain climb, go for hikes, and play video games.
