About Me

The northwest has been my home since 2003. I've always had a passion for technology. When I was younger I loved to take things apart just to see how they worked. I got my first camera when I was 16 and it was all downhill from there. Primarily self taught I turned to the internet for anything I could learn about filming, taking photos, editing videos, or photoshopping. Fast forward 7 years I'm now attending WSUV majoring in Digital Technology and Culture. I've had amazing opportunities that include shooting music videos to live events in L.A. Making a career out of what I love to do has led to starting a company, Kid Giant, with a couple close friends. I've even done a bit of design work for my local church and an eye clinic (where I'm currently working IT). From designing posters and flyers to coding up websites to making videos and taking photos I have a wide range of knowledge on multimedia.
