Kevin Wright

CCC student Kevin Wright is known as Ronin Roc in Portland’s night clubs. By night, he’s working at his dream job as a D.J. By day, he’s sharpening his skills in one of the college’s newest programs: Digital Multimedia Communication (DMC).

A few years ago Kevin’s life was quite different. He managed a skate shop and wanted to change careers. He was creative but hadn’t been the best high school student. He was intimidated by the idea of enrolling in college.

Kevin isn’t intimidated any more. He’s excelling at school and is focused on the fields of graphic design and video within the DMC program. He works full-time as a D.J. in the Portland night-life scene, at clubs, shows and after parties. He’s even been a D.J. at a show in Japan. Kevin also does a lot of multimedia work with web, video and graphic design. He uses his cinematography skills at shows, and his graphic design skills to build posters and websites. “The skills from CCC gave me tools to live my dream,” says Kevin. He developed the website anteup.pdx, in addition to designing and marketing clothing.

In the spring, he will be among one of the first group of students graduating with the DMC degree. He will continue to work in multimedia and hopes to earn a bachelor’s degree in art and eventually might become a teacher. Kevin has definitely turned up the volume on his career options.
