So it’s been awhile since I last posted (over a year).  You know what they say, time flies!

My last year at TCNJ was quite enjoyable – I caught up with a lot of old friends, met a bunch of new friends, and still found time for class and other projects.

This year saw (among other things) the release of collegiatetaiko.org (a hub for collegiate taiko groups and players), a refactoring of mtwstudios.com, work on TCNJ’s COMTOR and IJIMS projects, and work on a soon-to-be-released site!

I also found time to hone my photography skills by lugging my trusty Rebel XTs around with me everywhere I go, and holding impromptu photoshoots in the PAR.

Much of the Spring was spent preparing for Mystique of the East, an annual cultural showcase run by TCNJ’s Asian American Association.  I performed with TCNJ Taiko, debuting a new original song written by Mike Smith, and sang with Mariko Curran in a rendition of “All I Ask of You” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera… in Japanese.

When I wasn’t worrying about things at TCNJ, I was preparing for life after college by sending out various applications, interviewing, etc.  I eventually was offered (and accepted) a full-time position as a Web Developer for The New York Times!  I’m in the Client Technologies department which is responsible for (among other things) the front-end development on nytimes.com.

I started on May 17th (3 days after graduation.  Breaks are overrated.), and am working in the brand new building on 8th Ave. in Manhattan.  Come visit if you’re in the city, and we’ll do lunch! : )
