While in college studying pre-med to end up in the same medical profession as most of her family, Trisha spent a summer working in a printing press in Fremont, California as a binder that gave her enough time to complete her very first full-length screenplay 'Hola Armando' that was never produced but did the job to drop out of school and pursue her passion instead. With the support of her grandfather, whose own love for music could only realize after he retired from his profession as an ObGyn, Trisha started volunteering and interning for different production companies and learned every aspect of film production from being on set as a runner or production assistant, editor's help, demonstrator of new software and technologies at mall showrooms, until she was hired by a television network as an in-house producer. It was her experimental feature 'Flipped' that taught her a great deal about filmmaking. She was the only crew while her friends and family were cast in different roles. Although she refused to show it to anyone except lead actor San Banarje, the film became equivalent to several years of school for her.
