My creativity started with music. From a young age I wanted nothing more than to become a famous musician. I started playing guitar when I was 8. By age 12 I had started a rock band, which then transitioned into a punk rock band throughout my teenage years. At the age of 18 and after moving multiple times from Ohio to Florida and back, I started the tech metal band Caligula. We had some success, released a nation wide EP and went on tour.
After the band broke up I started looking for other areas that I could get into and utilize my creative side. My love for video games inspired me to enroll into college. After a few years and way too many student loans I graduated top of my class with a multiple degrees in web design and video development.
After teaching at Full Sail University for over 3 years I decided to pursure a Masters Degree. The Masters Degree has prepared me to be an expert in a leadership role.
