CEC Welcomes Dan Phan as the Digital Media Intern

A Houston native, Dan Phan is a student at the University of Houston where he is pursuing his degree in Digital Media with an emphasis in Motion Media. He currently serves as the historian for the UH Chapter of Graphics, Communication and Education Association (UHGCEA). His love for the city of Houston and storytelling is what inspires him to spread the culture through video and photo. 

Whenever Dan isn’t taking videos and photos, he is found behind a computer editing the photos and videos that he’s taken and works on solo projects for fun or freelance. Dan is a big fan of Houston sports, especially basketball, and spends his time going to basketball games, playing video games, biking, baking, and hanging out with friends.

Dan is excited for his opportunity at CEC to expand his knowledge of the environment and use his digital media skills to spread awareness.
