I have a degree

I graduated from Emily Carr University! It was a wild ride as I was in the first cohort through the New Media & Sound Arts program.

During my time I made 2 synthesizers, laser cut a song onto wood & acrylic, made a cajon, sound designed for an animation and several clips from popular films, scored a short film, made 2 EPs, performed several multi-channel electronic music experiences, and built an AR experience.

I covered a lot of ground and learned from loads of people. It was a great time that has prepared me for all the learning I have ahead of me.

Armed with a bachelor of media arts, I’m ready for the next chapter, whatever that entails. I’m focusing on UX design, ideally for a creative tool. There’s lots to learn, and the path is unclear, but that’s where the fun starts :).

This blog will basically keep track of what I learn on my way to wherever I’m going. I’m aiming for this to be a weekly thing… we’ll see how that goes.
