My earliest memories are of people saying to me "You're weird, kid." My mother, who worked with computers for a shipping company, introduced me to programming in DOS when I was 8 years old. My father was a musician and worked as a designer for Boeing, so he always had great tools around the house for me to "borrow". In middle school, people stopped calling me weird and started calling me "creative". I like that a lot better.
Through different avenues - some music related, some job related, and most recently church related - I've been able to try a lot of different things. Always refining my skill, and always pushing myself to new ends, I find that I never get bored with what I do.
Barge into my workspace and you'll probably catch me in Adobe Photoshop or After Effects. Hang around after that rude interruption and you'll get to see me in Illustrator or Premiere Pro. Say to me "don't you know how to do anything else?" and I'll maybe show off some dev skills or maybe if you're lucky a little Blender 3D. Pull out your drum sticks and our meeting just took a dramatic turn for the AWESOME!
I create a lot of things. Not all of them are birthed from within the creative confides of my right brain. In fact, I'll just say that MOST of them are in response to being challenged or inspired by art I did not create.
Here is a list of things I like to create, for work and for fun, and people or organizations that do it better than I do…
