A lot of what I know comes from my background in video production. I felt that if most of my work was going to be presented on the internet, why not also build the frame as well as the content. Much of the conventions I learned from my time as a video producer, director, and editor directly translated into the work I was doing on mobile and web products. From there I fostered the growth of a serious passion for user interfaces that functioned well.
Additionally, my experience with motion graphics has been quite a bonus to have when prototyping interaction animations. I continue to pursue video productions as a hobby in my spare time on my YouTube channel.
