Bumper DeJesus believes everyone has the power to create. Visual communication is what moves and shapes the world, and it has never been easier to use technology to develop multimedia projects. In his Brown Bag Series discussion, Bumper focused on the multidisciplinary nature of multimedia and how this allows for experimentation and boundary-pushing with cross-disciplinary collaborations. His biggest piece of advice for freshmen and budding professionals alike? Stay creative, invest in yourself, and find what drives you.
