Why did you want to work at CO+HOOTS?

I fell in love with Jenny Poon’s work and applied for an internship. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I would be working in such a welcoming environment. I love it here.

What are your hopes and dreams at CO+HOOTS?

At the moment, I am working towards my degree, but I have thought of starting up a company with my best friend once or twice. I hope to build the confidence and the experience that could help me consider making that dream a reality.

Members in CO+HOOTS may be able to help you as well… What are your own personal hopes and dreams?

My personal hopes and dreams are for travel. I want to go as many places as possible for both work and play. 3D Art is a personal passion of mine and with my graphic design degree, I hope to work with my hands, constantly building in the physical 3D space as well as the Virtual 3D space.

If you had a 100 billion dollars, you would…

HAH, probably blow it all on silly things. I’m terrible with money… Honestly though, I would probably invest in property. Everybody needs a place to rest their head, right? But 100 billion is a lot of money.

What should the CO+HOOTS community know about you?

Umm… I work at the zoo on the weekends?

What is the one thing people don’t know about you?

When I first started my Facebook profile, I set my birthday as April 1 as an April Fools prank for those who got the notification. I thought it was funny at the time.

Why are you awesome?

I am a sucker for puns.
