Hi, my name is Dylan. Music is my jam, toast is my bread and butter and earl grey is my cup of tea, but my heart belongs with art.
Born and raised in Florida, I am a late-millennial, 90s kid with an instinctive passion for art that has never waned. Although I am cautious by nature, I obsess over my goals and have never let anything obstruct my childhood dream of becoming a designer.
Growing up, I've taught myself animation, game programming, photography, design, guitar and piano along with many other skills. Despite dividing my time between so many endeavors, I've managed to maintain top priority in the visual arts. By the time I was 14, I won a film competition with a digital animation. I went on to graduate early from USF St Pete with a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History.
I am currently an Art Director at Paradise Advertising in St. Petersburg Florida. In my free time, I like to read, learn, and play music. I am friendly and care very much for the people in my life, so if you ever want to meet, drink tea, talk culture, or jam some music, feel free to say hi.
