Random facts about me: If you see me at The Station, I’m not a new guy. I do have a key, somewhere, but you might want to look around to make sure everything is okay; I have a couple degrees that have absolutely nothing to do with video production, but hey, at least I’m in good company with the other 73% of college graduates who don’t have a job related to their major; I’ve probably spent more time underwater than everyone else at Mighty Media, combined.
As a kid I dreamed of making money playing video games, which my parents swore was impossible. So I ran away from home, joined the United States Navy as a submariner (you can say it either way, we don’t mind), and travelled the 71% of the world nobody really plans a vacation to, like the GIUK gap and Straits of Hormuz. I proudly served for 22 years before I decided to retire, displace my entire family from the east coast to the west coast and relocate to the lovely state of Washington, which we had never been to but heard it has more Bigfoot sightings than any other state.
With a little luck and a lot of prayer I somehow managed to land a job at Mighty Media Studios, working remotely to support Microsoft and Xbox Live’s Major Nelson, doing pretty much whatever he needs me to do, sort of like a production assistant, I suppose. While I might not get paid to play video games, I work directly for someone who does, and that’s close enough for me–actually, I take that back, there have been a few days where it’s me, but I don’t know if I can say that here.
My current interest is drone photography and videography and drone recovery and repair. I have discovered these are directly related. I’ve never lost a drone, but I have brought them home in more pieces than I started with. Drone videos can be spectacular. So can drone crash videos.
I also like to write. Clearly. In my defense, I asked if there was a word limit and was told there wasn’t.
I’m a fairly private person, so even though I might not gush about my amazing wife, beautiful kids and cool dog, they are truly my favorite part of life and always deserve a mention when filling out a company bio.
