I majored in Digital Media and worked in the special effects industry up until the pandemic, having gotten my 3 Card Pyrotechnic license a month before March 2020. Since then I've become passionate about climate change and sustainability and have been taking some environmental college classes to figure what I might want to major in. However, currently I'm interested in slightly less stressful job (compared to working on set), something utilizing organization would be ideal. My greatest organizational accomplishment has been condensing and organizing a warehouse's massive collection of nuts, bolts, fittings, electronics, and parts that hadn't been organized in 30 years.
