Nobu loves to travel the globe. His passion is meeting new people and seeing new sights, and he loves to document them all with his lens. What drives his passion for photography? “I can capture the moment,” he says. “It can be hard to get that moment, that split second, but it feels great.” At age 31, Nobu has worked as an engineer for Siemens and a computer expert for Yahoo! He came to Appalachian as a computer science major, but after taking an elective course in Appalachian’s technical photography program, he decided to turn his hobby into a livelihood. His new career goal: work for a photographic retouching company in New York City.
