Here is some information about my career-related history.

Dates Description
1980’s First drawings as a child. I have been drawing since I can remember. My favorite things to draw were portraits.
1987 I won First Place in a manatee drawing contest for 2nd graders at Windy Hill Elementary school.

I had a drawing featured in a local art gallery outside the school. It was a drawing of a panther (or some kind of wild cat) in the jungle.
Spring 1996

Shadowbox sculpture featured in Douglas Anderson student gallery. I was really happy this happened. Originally, I had a really bad creativity block with this project.
Summer 1996 Made anime music videos using 2 VCR’s and a hand tape recorder. I didn’t have summer school at this time, and I thought it would be fun to do. My boyfriend at the time liked it so much that he made his own music videos using Bruce Lee kung-fu movies.
1997 First website: Julieville. I started this personal website in 10th grade. I originally set out to make an anime page, but it evolved into something else. It included sections for my biography, music, video files, artwork and poetry, shouts out to friends, and a page commenting on Asian American culture. Aside from this website, I did have a temporary one up for Parties in Florida.
