MDM gave the support and opportunity to find my place within the digital media industry; it’s more than just a program where you gain knowledge but a place where you gain the confidence to pursue your own ideas and acquire the tools to bring those ideas to life be they technical or industry skills. MDM gave me the foundation to start companies, raise financing, and work with world class clients.
My two years at the MDM have shaped me in more ways than ever imagined. It gave me a reason to step outside my creative comfort zone and surround myself with new ideas, technologies and most importantly with a group of wonderful and immensely talented people.
