Working/Getting my Film Degree

Masimo Corporation /Cal State Fullerton

While I worked full time, I was also using my GI Bill to get a film degree from Cal State University Fullerton. I was also working full time at Masimo Industries during this time. The job experience isn't all related to media, but I did learn a lot about data collection and the importance of accurate records. I studied abroad in Korea and worked an internship at Chosun TV, a cable news outlet in Korea.
