Welcome to my page! My name is Kristen Arias and I am from Fresno, California. I am a sophomore at Drake University and pursuing a B.A. in Digital Media Production and planning to add a B.A. in Theatre and a Minor in Advertising. I transferred from San Jose State University on a softball scholarship. Softball has been a part of my life for years. It is one of my true passions and has taught me lifelong lessons on success, failure, accountability, and leadership. Along with softball comes my passion for baseball. From the day I was born, MLB and the Oakland A’s have held a place in my heart.
Some of my hobbies include traveling, video editing, going to the movies, loving animals, and living Disney. Being from California, my family and I have been on numerous trips to Los Angeles.
My lifelong dream has been to work for Disney or a studio such as Warner Brothers. I love films and acting, with video editing, producing, and directing being some of my true passions. Stepping foot onto a movie set fills my head with thoughts beyond belief as I explode with imagination and creativity. It’s as if you step out of reality and into another world with endless possibilities. No matter how many times I have been to Disneyland, it’s as if my inner child has never left. Having a love for all things Disney and entertainment has inspired me to pursue my dreams, with hopes of living in the City of Angels.
Within my site is a mass collection of my various works and interests. Over the years I have learned and mastered in products such as Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, and InDesign. I have taken courses in Video Production, as well as Digital Media and Web Design. My love for film was first discovered at a young age, from drawing cartoons and real life objects to engaging in app design. In high school, I took a four-year computer science pathway, in which I learned app design, animation basics, and created my own video game. I took three years of theatre classes, where I took part in a play Almost Maine.
At San Jose State, I also took an acting class, which is why I wish to pursue this as a major as well. I have been to Warner Brothers, Paramount, and Sony studios. A fun fact is I have met celebrities such as Tim Allen, Taylor Lautner, and Sugar Ray. I hope all who visit my site enjoy reading and learning about me as a person, student-athlete, and dreamer!
