I first got into design as a direct result of my interest in music. I taught myself how to use Adobe Photoshop CS2 because I was making my own music under the name Exorsystem and uploading it to a Myspace Music page I created for myself. I wanted to make cool looking graphics and logos for my page so I started by doing as many online tutorials as I could do and slowly began getting better as time passed. After joining my first hardcore band in high school, I started doing some designs for the band. I got some good feedback from other bands and was asked to do some for theirs too. Then it just snowballed from there. I decided to start freelancing in 2008 and I have not looked back since. I have been fortunate enough to work with bands, musicians, and clothing companies from all around the world on various projects ranging from merch designs to full blown Myspace layouts.

After working in the music industry for a while, I decided to switch it up a bit by pursuing a career in the post-production side to film and television. More specifically motion graphic design and 3D animation. I first got interested in motion graphics after watching some Kinetic Typography videos that were created in After Effects. After doing some research I began teaching myself how to use the program by doing some online tutorials. I became really interested in this line of design work after discovering that there was a school in Burbank that offered training in Motion Graphics. I researched the school, requested a catalog, took a free tour of the campus and applied all within a span of 2 months. The time I spent there learning, meeting new people, and gaining valuable insights as to how the post production side of film making works is time I would never trade for anything in the world.
