Video Producer/3D Visuals
- Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan
This is my chance to tell you a little about me. Not the jobs titles, accomplishments, or education, more about what makes me, well... me.
I was taught from a very young age, "go to work, work hard, and go the extra mile to get the job done, and done correctly." These are the values I try to live everyday.
I would say the best way to describe me is as a Creative Problem Solver. That is just the way I am wired. My mind is constantly looking at the world around me and asking the question, "could that work better?" Then we are off to the races. It doesn't matter if it is a design problem or a group dynamics issue. I am always looking for the right solution. To that end I am blessed with a massive appetite for information and research. I thrive on it. These qualities have served me well in my life and career. There are many times where I saw a need and took it upon myself to find the solution for those needs, and fill them.
Even though my mind is always in "could that work better" mode, I find time to just relax and hang out with my wife, go camping, kayaking, walking our dog Chloe, and a multitude of unique hobbies such as archery and RC aircraft. Sometimes you need to take the advice from one of my favorite movies, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Ferris Bueller
