JM Chavaria (Multimedia Producer)

JM’s highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds.

If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM’s system, watching films, series, and playing games are his approved therapeutic claims.
