Amanda Roundy

The year after graduating I moved to Washington State, where shortly after I got engaged. After a two year engagement I realized that it wasn’t the healthiest relationship for me, and I broke it off, after which I moved to the California Central Coast. This was the best decision of my life. Once I had residency I enrolled in Allan Hancock College and restarted my education. I began pursuing Graphic Design (my passion since 8th grade) and while doing so fell in love with a few other artistic fields. I enrolled into a multimedia DVD designing course where I created a video (not part of the assignment) for the DVD I was designing for a tattoo parlor. While taking this class I not only decided to add Multimedia as a second major, I immediately grew a passion for editing video; so I added Video Production to my list of majors. Through the courses I also realized I enjoy photography, but decided to draw the line at three Associate Degrees. I earned both Multimedia and Video production Associate degrees last spring, and I’m finishing my initial major Graphic Design this semester.

I am working a few part time jobs right now as well as doing a few things on my own. Starting with the least interesting: I waitress (pretty much what I have been doing for the last 10 years, serving and managing at different restaurants); I’m also an assistant to a private investigator, where I maintain his websites and do other office duties. I have been freelancing my design skills lately, as well as starting an upcoming T-shirt line called INVOKE with a friend. The most exciting job I have is one I just started this last month, I am now an assistant editor for a documentary called “Fight of the Fishermen”. I am so excited and grateful to finally be able to start my career in film, this is going to be my foot through the door.

I have several future goals, including getting my Pop-Up Book series published and work as a successful freelance graphic designer. I would also like to open a restaurant/beer garden/ club in the Santa Ynez Valley where I live. My biggest goal is to travel the world producing my informant and culture based documentaries.

As for love, I am very jealous of all those who have families, and a significant other. I definitely want children and my clock is ticking… but none of my past relationships have been “the one” and I want to have a stable relationship before getting married and start a family. I am completely at peace these last few months that I have been single (almost 2 1/2 year relationship prior) and as I focus on all my goals I know I will fall into the right place when it comes to finding true love and having a family.

I can’t wait to come back home and visit, and see how everyone has changed… which is all I have done in the past 10 years. It will definitely be pleasant to be around those I grew up with again. See you all at the reunion =)
