The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
I've always been excited about computer graphics and interactive entertainment. The ETC program presented a unique opportunity to further develop these interests, and express both my technical background and artistic skills. There were several highlights in this program. At ETC's flagship class, "Building Virtual Worlds", I first encountered virtual reality. It opened my mind to innovative ways of story telling and how technology can unlock our creative potential. I am very appreciative of the ETC program's emphasis on the pragmatic aspects of building entertainment technologies and the collaborations it fostered across diverse skillsets. One of the projects I am most proud of was an independent game I built along with an interdisciplinary team, "Polarity", which won many accolades in the independent games community. After graduation I joined Disney to help shape the future of entertainment.
