Why did you choose Comm Studies as your major?

I wanted to work in Media and the Entertainment Industry

Favorite UCLA memory and/or professor:

Hands down my favorite professor was Professor Von Blum. He was inspirational and knew that teaching was not just about book learning. His classes were always a lesson in critical thinking and creative expression, as well as moral sensitivity.

How has Comm Studies empowered you in your professional and personal life?

It gave me a well-rounded perspective and approach to my work. It instilled a sensitivity to social responsibility in reaching mass audiences.

What advice would you give to a current Comm Studies student?

Work hard and try to do some good in this world.

Fun facts, interests, hobbies:

Adopted a rescued puppy. Named him Ippudo which means "first hall of wind" in Japanese. But truthfully, he is named after my favorite ramen chain.

Significant Achievements:

Writing the English Language Script for Ernest & Celestine and attending the Academy Awards this year for Ernest & Celestine. Joining the cast of Avatar: Legend of Korra, my first Nickelodeon gig.
