Longest amount of time you’ve worked on a single project?

It has to be 100+ hours for one project. But 63 hours is longest all nighter for a project.

Best Moment of VCD

Passing the intro to vcd class.

Worst Moment of VCD

Sleeping through a project turn in class… It was during my 63 hour all day/nighter. I laid down for an hour before class just scrolling on my phone. It was 6 a.m. class was at 7:45 a.m., and my body just shut down. I didn’t hear my alarms, my friends blowing up my phone, I barley even heard my friend banging on my dorm door. It took him a solid 5-10 minutes to get me to wake up. That was my worst and most fearful VCD moment.

What inspires you?

Emotions, what I feel and others feel inspires the work I do. My goal it to put even the smallest of smiles on somebody’s face.

Best advice you’ve been given

That just about everything is subjective, especially in a design field. Not everybody is going to like your work and that is totally okay.

What’s one thing you can’t live without?

My glasses. When I have them on I see how wonderful the world is. But when I take my glasses off everything is blurry, giving me the chance to see the imperfections and how they can be wonderful too.
