Greetings!

My name is Qian Bao and I am an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, double-majoring in Communication, Culture, Information and Technology (CCIT) and Professional Writing and Communication (PWC). I am expected to receive the Honours Bachelor of Arts in June 2018.

I am a regular consumer of tech blogs such as Engadget and the Verge. Personally, I am passionate about consumer technologies and would love to share my knowledge of the tech industry with the public through digital media. For me, communication in the 21st century is about interaction and engagement through web 2.0. It’s about delivering quality content through creative and interactive methods that are enabled by the media technologies we have. I host a personal tech blog named QuantumBytes (http://quantumbytes.me) where I share commentary and analysis of recent technologies and trends in the tech industry.

In terms of technologies and professional skills, I have extensive experience in the post-production of image, video and audio through Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro. I am also familiar with graphic design software such as Illustrator and InDesign to create visuals. I am able to handle professional filming and recording equipment, ranging from DSLR and video drone to XLR microphone and MIDI controller. I can work with WordPress and Bootstrap Framework, and other web-design elements like HTML, XML, CSS and PHP to create and manage websites.

These coding and programming elements help me better understand the technical side of the digital world we live in today.
