I Live UCD

I run UC Davis Student Affairs’ blog and write about life as a student, give advice and showcase what a wonderful campus it is to attend.

AggieTV

As a member of AggieTV, UC Davis’ student run video production organization, we produce stories about the campus and community. I’ve been behind and in front of the camera: shooting fellow reporters, lighting the scene, interviewing subjects and editing footage.

Read here for more about my experience with this awesome club.

UC Davis Queen LipDub Music Video

6 months my life have been consumed in planning this LipDub music video. It is our (AggieTV’s) love letter to Davis showcasing all the unique parts of campus. I storyboarded, funraised money, painted signs and props, outreached students, designed marketing flyers, directed the guitarists and cyclists at the end and much much more.

Multimedia

As a web intern for UComm at UC Davis, I produced multimedia content for the Spotlight Feature of the UC Davis homepage. I developed my skills in Photostop, Final Cut Pro, Audacity and Sounslides to produce photos, video, audio, and writing.

Featured Projects:
Tai Chi Soundslides
How To Get Hired
Picnic Day Interactive Map
Graduating Seniors: Why do you love Davis?

Red Balloon

I met Jennifer Allison Tran at her Red Balloon benefit concert back in 2009 when I was shadowing for AggieTV. Her nonprofit raises money to support the music therapy program at the UC Davis Children’s Hospital & partners with other great causes.

We’ve been wanting to do a photoshoot together ever since and decided to shoot at my favorite place on campus - the arboretum!

See the full photo shoot on Flickr.

Amrituppet

"I wish I could be a muppet to marry Animal," said my friend Amrita on our way to a Camera Obscura concert. A bright lightbulb popped above my head and soon my friend Chris & I gathered materials from Michael’s and Goodwill to make her dream come true.

A photo shoot around the Berkeley campus (her alma mater) ensued resulting in this compilation.

See photos of the making of the muppet.

And yes, Elmo was the inspiration for Amrituppet’s voice.

Nirvana is coming, the mystic portal awaits!

Search for Nirvana is a photo project where I photograph Toy Story aliens in Pixar related places around the San Francisco Bay Area
