I love to find ways to unify my passions.

Since I am continually searching for ways to enhance my skills, contribute to the worlds of creativity and technology and become even more efficient and proficient, I am always open to learning more.

Below is a list of subject areas where I am extremely confident in my skills due to my work experience during the last few years.
In addition to the skills listed above, I have taken several online courses offered by Udacity, Udemy, Lynda.com and LinkedIn, to name a few. I currently have certificates for each of the courses below and will add additional certifications as I complete more courses. I love to learn!
For Game Design and Development, I classify myself as a beginner because I have explored and learned about the Unity and Unreal Game Engines recently. I have completed a Udemy course on the Unity Game Engine, which can be found in my certifications. I am also in the process of taking a course on the Unreal Engine. I do have more experience with the Gameplay and Systems Design Side of Game Development as opposed to the art side. I do plan on exploring the art side as well. I have experimented with Adobe Photoshop and the Hammer Map Editor for the Source Engine to create Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Skins and a Map. Since I like to take what I learn and move into action, I am excited to be publishing one of my ideas for a mobile game on Google Play very soon. Look for The Obstacle and have some fun!
For graphic design, I classify myself as an advanced graphic designer because I have several years of experience in creating and selling my own designs. I really enjoy bringing ideas to life, as in the case of custom-printed designs, logos, websites and branding for my own company and clients.
Presently, I create designs that have been printed on t-shirts, hoodies, long sleeve shirts, posters, mugs, tote bags and skateboards. Additionally, I have designed and produced, with the help of a third-party manufacturer, custom, challenge coins for a client. I was excited to see how my careful research, selection and collaboration with this third-party manufacturer delivered a coin my client was proud to use at his fundraiser.
I love when an idea, design, and final product come together. Whether the design may be a concept design, as in the case of shoes, car wraps, and abstracts, or a way to enhance online experiences through logos, websites and live streams on Twitch, Youtube and Facebook with graphical overlays, I enjoy designing and delivering products I, my friends and clients can enjoy! Take a moment and see all that I have designed. Enjoy!
For music production, I classify myself as a beginner to an intermediate-level musician. My love of music began with playing the cornet in elementary school through high school, where I was selected for the Advanced Band Class due to my skills. Also, I began creating my own music using pre-made loops in GarageBand on my first MacBook and later started producing some of my own music using FL Studio, Studio One 3 and a Nektar LX25 Midi keyboard. So far, I have created music in the genres of Hip-Hop, Cinematic, Trap and Rap. Some of my best tracks have been used in my own personal video production projects.

For technical support and repair, I classify myself as an advanced technician and troubleshooter. I have always been curious about technology and how it works. Over the years I have experimented with all kinds of equipment and projects. From installing different operating systems on my computer, jailbreaking my iPhones, rooting my Androids, building my own Gaming PC, and setting up my Synology NAS, I have accumulated a lot of experience. Whenever my devices malfunction or stop working completely, I troubleshoot, diagnose, and fix them. Today, I am the resident technical support and repair person for my entire family. I am also the go-to-authority for questions related to purchasing new devices. It’s fun for me!
For video production, I classify myself as an advanced video producer. My love of video production began with my first MacBook Pro and iMovie, where I created a few amateur skits and scooter trick montages with my friends. Later, in high school, I took a Digital Video Production class, where I was exposed to Final Cut Pro, Canon T5i DSLR cameras, and later Adobe Premiere. Since high school, I have created many videos including videos for my own personal use, family photo slideshows of family events and weddings, gaming content for YouTube and online, social media advertisements for my company Fall3nWarrior and other video projects. Presently, I am learning Adobe After Effects and how I can use it to create some basic animations and effects for my videos. Why not take a closer look at some of my projects by clicking below?
For web design, I classify myself as an advanced web designer, especially within WordPress. Since I have always been curious about websites and how they were made and accessed through the internet, I created and experimented with designing a few personal sites using the Webs.com and Weebly.com Platforms when I was young. In my high school years, my parents needed to update and redesign their company website. Once they selected the Wix Platform for the site, I migrated and slightly redesigned their site for them. Initially, my company website, Fall3nWarrior.com, was created using Wix but, due to the national sales tax requirements of an E-Commerce store, I later migrated it to BigCommerce and finally to WordPress. With WordPress, I have more than four years of experience with different hosting providers, third-party themes, page builders, plugins, implementing Search Engine Optimization, executing site maintenance tasks and so much more. To date, I have built four WordPress websites, including this site, and one Wix site, which are all currently live on the internet. In time, any additional sites that I create will be added to the list below. Why not take a closer look by clicking below?
