Create Something Cool Today.
When I was in the classroom teaching Video Production and Film Making, I started every class saying the same thing. "Create Something Cool Today". Now I sit in an office in an administration building for a school district in Texas and I try to take my own advice on a daily basis. Graphics, animations, videos, and creative content take up the majority of my time from 8-5 everyday, but the longer I spend in this career, I realize that this statement is so much more than just my "day job".
Over the last year or so, I have began creating content that is not work related. Content that is just fun. Whether it is a random podcast-style conversation with my five year old, custom graphic work for an Alzheimer’s fundraiser our family took part in, or something to talk trash in a fantasy baseball league, I truly just enjoy creating things. During this time I have had the opportunity to lead classes for teachers in my district, network with people around the country and present topics to various audiences on both work and ‘fun’ related content creation. The list of “things to create” has gotten longer over this time and I need a place to just let them grow. So welcome to the most random spot on the internet, I hope you find something interesting here, but more importantly, I hope you find time to Create Something Cool Today. It’s worth it.
