What inspired you to come to ENVD when choosing your school?
I actually had another school picked out that I was pretty positive I was going to go to. During a layover in Denver before touring that school my mom encouraged me to come tour CU, during the ENVD tour I fell in love with the studio culture and atmosphere and couldn't see myself anywhere else.

Your mindset forges your experience and reality.

Work in studio as much as possible, and don't underestimate the value of learning from your peers.
