I come from Burbank, CA.
I speak English, Armenian, and a bit of Spanish.
Clubs/groups you are involved in on campus: I’m the Treasurer of the Woodbury Arts Association.
Favorite courses: I’ve enjoyed a lot of my game classes for teaching me a lot of new skills, especially the ones that focus on programming. However, ANIM 204 Layout and GAME 323 Story Interactive are some of my top favorites I’ve taken since I feel like they’ve nurtured my art and writing skills the most.
Favorite Spot on campus and why: It would probably have to be the little patio area behind the Writing Center. It’s a charming, quiet spot that many people don’t stumble upon, so it’s a nice place to sit by one of the benches and do work. Or you can just enjoy the nature!
Hobbies / interests: I love drawing and illustrating. It’s always acted as a springboard for me to express myself, so it’s an interest of mine I strive to constantly improve in. Also I love playing any kinds of games: board games, video games — you name it! I’m always willing to give something a try.
I chose to attend Woodbury University because I liked how well put together the Game Design curriculum was. I genuinely felt like there was a nice balance of infusing an interdisciplinary versus specialized approach to the classes, so I foresaw coming out of Woodbury with a balanced and marketable skill set. Short commute time was definitely a nice bonus as well.
