Shako Oteka is a graduate of the Living Arts College of 2013. Mr. Oteka received his BA degree in Interactive Media Arts with a focus on photography and advertising. Shako has a long story that cannot be told in a few words, but one thing is clear; he is passionate about whatever he does and will stop at nothing to be the best. While acing most of his classes at Living Arts College and becoming a two time Addy Award winner, Mr. Oteka also worked full time. That same passion also led to him receiving the Lauterborn Scholarship, and after graduation the passion would continue.

After much soul searching, Shako set out to obtain a Master’s degree. Although many choices were placed before him, it would be Virginia Commonwealth University’s The Brand Center that would contain his next phase of passion. The Brand Center is a very competitive and forward thinking environment where minds are molded to answer tomorrow’s most challenging marketing problems. As a star on the rise, I am sure that Shako will not disappoint.
