Los Angeles (Glendale), CA
First generation Armenian from Iran. '80s child, '90s teen, high school class of '00. Raised equally by a third parent (American pop culture) and thankful for it. For most of my life, my top three interests (both personally and professionally) have been education, technology, and mass media - especially film. I hold a BA in Communication Studies, a secondary English teaching credential, and an MA in Education with a focus in Instructional Design and Technology. I currently work for an amazing educational/philanthropic cause, and enjoy various hobbies (and geeking out) in my spare time. In my not-too-distant future I see an MLIS degree leading to higher than usual doses of cinephilia, film archiving, and media asset management. And, of course, even more geeking out.
