Content Manager

Question: What is your favorite endangered species and why?

Answer: I can’t pick just one! There are many species of bats that are considered vulnerable to critically endangered, and they are crucial to the survival of their ecosystems. Pangolins, snow leopards, rhinos, and whales are also some of my favorites. All creatures have a vital role to play, besides being majestic and adorable!

Lauren Stanley

Graphic Design Specialist

Question: What is one passion you enjoy?

Answer: Portrait Illustration – I love drawing and illustrating faces. Drawing is my way of escaping, relaxing, and satisfying my inner creativity. Graphic designers don’t always get to express their true artistic abilities, there are still rules you have to follow. But when I am drawing, there are no limitations.

Question: What do you think is the greatest invention of all time and why?

Chris Torrez

Social Media Specialist

Question: Is what you’re doing now what you always wanted to do growing up?

Answer: When I was growing up I actually wanted to be a Paleontologist, so to answer the question no. In fact I never even thought about working in the website design industry especially not as a social media specialist. However, I love what I do and I wouldn’t change it for the world!

Jay Jones

Web Development Specialist

Question: If the UCI Digital team were a band, what would you call it and what would everyone play?

Answer: Our band name would be U.C.I but would stand for, Ugly Chicken Inquisition. Everyone plays electric triangle (No exceptions, those who disagree shall perish.), with an army of chickens screeching sounds more beautiful than that of the sight of Aurora Borealis.
