ABOUT ME

Hello! I am Travis and this is my portfolio site.

I have an unhealthy obsession over J-Pop and a resistance to people telling me to get a haircut for almost 2 years now, which probably means I have a lot of issues that I'm not dealing properly with.

Currently a final-year Mass Communication student, I've realised that life is too short to be taken seriously (spoiler alert: we all die in the end anyway) so I make it a point to seek fun in everything I do, even in the most mundane tasks like showering. I just pretend like I'm in a music video.

I'm available for freelance jobs and/or a simple chat over a cup of coffee! I'll be more than willing to assist you in your awesome projects. I'm also single and available ;) Contact / Resume / Works
