Hi Everyone - My name is Manny Mandapat and I live in the San Francisco/Bay Area (California). With a Masters in Business & Public Administration and a Bachelors in Public Administration, my background is in government accounting, analysis, budgeting, and management. Currently, I work for the City & County of San Francisco as an Operations Supervisor. Ever since I was young, I always had the knack of planning events, especially the design side of it. In fact, I was chosen to design the event space where our department held its annual holiday party, which turned out to be a success. I hope to utilize my creativity, work experience, and skills not only to open my own business one day, but to also inspire others. I strongly believe this industry is evolving, and I want to be a part of it.
This is my first week at Lovegevity. I am excited to learn new things and do the class projects. With the proper guidance and self-motivation, I hope I can do well in the program. In doing this first project, I recognize how important it is to be detailed in choosing a design/image. It has to tie in together.
For my mood board, I decided on a "Rustic Winter" wedding theme. I decided to choose Winter since it is the current season. I then added the rustic theme as I do enjoy the design and elements that come with it. When I think of a "Rustic Winter" wedding, I visualize candles, wood, lights, snow, pines/cones, etc. Overall, the theme/mood gives a sense of warmth and simplicity.
