My name is Tara and I am 23-year-old digital media student.

Digital Media Background

Creating things is something I’ve always enjoyed.

I was first introduced to the digital media world when I was very young. As a young girl, I would mostly play on the paint application. I had a strong passion for drawing, coloring, crafting, collecting writing utensils, paper, stickers, and any other office supply you could think. From about third to fifth grade, my knowledge in digital media expanded. I began using Paint to make repeatable backgrounds and collages. I would draw over pictures of my friends and I to give them a cartoon-drawn look. I also began exploring free online website builders, such as Freewebs. In seventh grade, I joined MySpace and Tumblr. This is where my web design skills really expanded. I learned basic HTML and CSS, which mostly consisted of coding colors, images, fonts, borders, and few other things. In middle school, I began diving into photography and video. I took my camera everywhere and my friends and I filmed and took pictures of everything. Afterwards, I would then take the videos and pictures into Movie Maker and create short films and slideshows to upload to YouTube. My best friend and I also liked to film random bits and upload them to YouTube. In high school, I got a job at my mom’s marketing company. I do a range of things like web design, graphics, and video. After I graduated high school I began taking digital media classes in college and I will be graduating with my Video Production Degree in Spring of 2020.

All in all, I’ve always enjoyed the digital media world and creating things on my computer from any location at any time, and I plan to keep creating content and sharing it with the world.

Gaming Background

In addition to digital media, I also have interests in animals, gaming, and gardening.

I’ve enjoyed games in all forms from handheld devices, to consoles, to computer games – heck even board games! I had so many computer games growing up, but the main one I had an addiction to when I was young was ‘Reader Rabbit 1st Grade’. One of my favorite parts about the game was going into the paint studio to create an animation of a ball bouncing around (go figure). But I also had a fascination with the desktop pinball game. During this time, I also enjoyed playing Pokemon Snapshot and Pokemon Stadium on the Nintendo 64. I also tried to play Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. I was never any good at these until later years. Ok, so quick confession… the moon in Majora’s Mask seriously freaks me out. In later years, I began playing other games on the Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Neopets, and Barbie websites. I’m sure there were others too. After that phase was over, I began playing games like Webkinz, Club Penguin, Sims, and Runescape. Then, my brother introduced me to World of Warcraft (Vanilla).
