About Me

I majored in Digital Media Innovation, a new STEM-designated degree in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Texas State University. There I learned about a multitude of digital skills including: web development, social media and analytics, media writing, photo and video editing, and multimedia story telling. Before I attended Texas State, I decided to begin my college career at LSU in Baton Rouge where I majored in Electrical Engineering. After a few semesters of poor grades and work ethic, I knew I could not continue down the same path and I needed to make some changes. I made the decision to pull myself out of LSU and immediately enrolled at Austin Community College, in my home town of Austin, for a semester where I decided that Texas State was the best option because of the Digitial Media Innovation program.

Background

I was born in Lafayette, Louisiana in November of 1996 to Mike and Kelley Adams. My father was born in Seoul, South Korea where he was adopted as a baby. They moved to Louisiana where he met my mother, who was born in Baton Rouge. I am the youngest of three brothers. The oldest, Josh, is adopted and Alex is the middle child in the family. When I was in the first grade, my family moved to Austin, Texas which is where I ultimately grew up. I consider myself to be lucky to have two “homes” and to have such a deep connection with two amazing states. I am a massive fan of anything sports. I am a lifelong LSU Tiger though I have loved growing up in Texas Longhorn country. 

Education

2015-2016

I attended LSU my freshman year to study electrical engineering and moved back home after realizing it was not the best fit for me.

2017

Once I decided to make the move home last minute, I decided to attend Austin Community College to figure out a new path.

2018-Present

After choosing Texas State University, Digital Media Innovation was an easy major to select because of the diverse  subjects covered.
