Danny Adelman

Associate Art Director

Phoenix, AZ, USA
I've created award-winning designs and animations, directed local broadcast commercials, and have been involved in television station promotion for half a decade. I now apply the skills I've learned in those years to the commercial production market in Phoenix, AZ.

Currently, I am looking for opportunities to test my skills on a larger stage. I'm also highly interested in start-ups and entrepreneurship. I'm planning my second career to be in areas of pre-production, creative direction, management, and script writing.

I'm really into: technology, anime, gaming, writing, traveling, boxing, physical fitness, and dining out.
