Gabe, cooking is a VERY important skill biggrin.gif I like hanging around my mom sometimes in the kitchen (she's an awesome cook) as i'd like to catch up with some stuff, in order to be able to impress the ladies biggrin.gif but since I never have the time to experiment... smile.gif

I somehow almost forgot, in addition to music, I do Visual FX/Motion Graphics as well. I"ve been a freelancer for quite a while.
I worked at a place here in Atlanta called Turner Studios (on the Turner/Cnn/Cartoon Network Campus in Atlanta) for a while
and it was big fun smile.gif Here is my demo reel with some shots from various projects. A few are old cartoon network spots.



And here is a shot I completed for an installation project that will be permanently installed at the Atlanta Airport.

It's sort of an old Black and White post card that comes to life. smile.gif

I guess I'm pretty good at writing software if that counts. I got into it in the beginning cause I had good math skills in school. So I went to college and got a degree in electrical engineering. From there I worked for a few years designing electronic circuit boards and then moved into software cause at the time (and it still is) it was becoming a much larger industry with high demand for talented programmers who also knew a thing or two about computer and digital hardware.

That and I'm also into woodworking. I built a bunch of stuff over the years including an entertainment center, a big display case for my wife, (not to display my wife in mind you biggrin.gif but for her to put stuff in and display it), several guitar display cases, oh, and I used to build speaker cabinets. I still have a pair of 15" side fill monitors I made that we used in my band for a while during rehearsals. They make kick ass home stereo speakers. Also, I built a redwood deck in the back of my house and a very sophistocated tool shed at the side yard that both turned out great.

I'm also into golf, but not very talented. tongue.gif I score in the low 80s sometimes which might be pretty ok for a weekend golfer, but not really even great for an amateur. It's fun, but I had better not quit my day job just yet. smile.gif

Not sure about skill or talent, but here is a result of my rock'n'roll hobby:

Well, with a slightly different shade, this could have looked more dangerous than it really is. It was this guy who did it:

I recently worked on a "spec" Commercial for NIKE doing digital FX

(Digital FX is one of my Fav Hobbies! I'm an AFTER EFFECTS and APPLE MOTION guy)

And here is the result smile.gif The shots were farmed out lots of folks. I did the shots where they fly on water and she knocks him down. It was all shot GREEN SCREEN.

I missed this thread! I trained as a Chef so am fairly good in a Kitchen, I also qualified as an Engineer so can make pretty much anything out of Metal!! I build Bikes and Guitars. Ireally enjoy doing some of my Guitar Tech work for people, especially when they bring me an old 'plank' and I turn it back into a playable Instrument for them!! I also used to do a lot of Art when I was at school, I always thought that Art and Music were closely linked!!
