I’m going to keep this pretty straightforward. As you may have already concluded, my name is Danny Adelman and this is my website.
I’m a thirty-one-year-old guy born ‘n raised in Tucson, Arizona. I migrated northward to Phoenix, Arizona about three years ago. It’s pretty awesome living inside the famed, cyclically re-birthed bird of flames from mythological legend. Joking aside, Phoenix summers do feel as hot as the insides of a real, god-like bird made of inextinguishable fire. Ask anyone who lives here. Lucky for me, I was born in the desert not too far away and I tend to enjoy the warmth most days throughout the year.
Over fifteen years ago, I started dabbling in graphic design. Back then, it was also referred to as “Desktop Publishing”. What started as a way to make “1337 signature or ‘sig’ graphics” for web forums I was a part of back then, slowly turned into an addictive hobby. Before I knew it, I spent hundreds of hours in school and at home doing tutorials and designing my personal website and anything I wanted to customize graphically.
A few years later, I took this hobby a step further, choosing it as an initial career path as I couldn’t pry myself away from Photoshop’s embrace for the longest time. She used to control my life, Photoshop. But then, a new harlot stole my attention: After Effects. She was only a six when I met her (like Photoshop was), but she had the potential of being a ten. She was a lot more flexible and liked to get up and move around a lot, making her lifestyle choices appeal to me more.
My interests in all things visual only grew from college and into the start of my career in local television. I’ve dabbled in photography, cinematography, & 3D since then and I still enjoy practicing my creative eye in different mediums. Currently, I’m interested in focusing down on a few graphical paths: websites, photography, and 3D abstract art.
Slowly, I’m starting to branch out into two separate career paths: entrepreneurship and screenwriting; with the former essentially funding the time for the latter.
Looking to hire?
Over the years I learned many things through interviewing. The primary being that I may not be right for every job out there or every employer. However, for the jobs and people that I am right for, I am capable of doing amazing work and should a perfect storm occur in regards to projects and resources, I’ve proved to myself and others in the past that I can create something truly special. So if you have an opportunity for work, send me a message and let’s see if we’re a good fit.
