Currently, Cooper runs a video production business in Seattle, Washington. Half of his work involves weddings and the other half are corporate videos. GCC gave him the fundamental business skills to be a successful self-employed “solopreneur”. Cooper explained that after he films one client he does all of the marketing, finances, taxes, and customer service on his own.
Cooper enjoyed attending GCC because of the flexible schedules and also because of the drive from his peers. “The students that attended GCC had aspirations for a higher education which was influential to me,” said Cooper.
During his time in Glendale, Cooper admired his instructors who were passionate about their subject and loved the students. “The instructors made learning fun and they really care about our education,” said Cooper.
