I started creating websites at the age of 12 (1997). I don't know why the thought of creating a home on the web was so intriguing to me. I guess it was my first taste at creating "art" in a way that, at the time - not many people knew about. My love for creating things on the internet grew to photo shopping and to eventually video editing. I was always thirsty at learning new things - especially in the commercially available Adobe product line.
My love of video games and horror movies really launched my hunger for a career in Community Management as well. In Late 2017 I was asked by the CEO of iLLFONIC Games (Creator of Friday the 13th: The Game) to be a temporary community leader due to my love of passion for the franchise and always being the one to help others with their questions. This turned into a full goal to make a career out of it. I enrolled in Full Sail University in 2018 to get a bachelors degree in Media Communications. Ever since then it has been my goal to land another job in the video game industry.
