I came here to chew bubble gum and make cool stuff….and I am all out of bubble gum.
You know that feeling you get when you just know, just exactly know, what exactly you want to do with your life? You probably do. Of course you do! But most people don’t. Most people hate what they do for a living. I was one of those people for the first 28 years of my life. But then I had the most simple, but most important life changing thought driving home from work one day…
“I want to love what I do. I want that feeling.”
So I went after it.
I quit my nice job at a Physical Therapy Clinic (Sorry Tom!), I enrolled at Specs Howard School of Media Arts, and I learned about subjects that I actually wanted to learn about. (Sorry Calculus, it’s not me, it’s you.)
Fast forward a year or so, and I now know how to use Adobe Audition, After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro pretty well. Lets not forget how to storyboard, write a script, and operate a camera, among other things. I learned the basics on how to take an idea from concept all the way to finished product on a screen. But like any person worth their weight, that wasn’t enough, and I am not done learning.
Like I said…
I’m going after it.
