ABOUT ME

Hold on to your butts...

Autobiography

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.

5 Facts You Need To Know

I’m a colossal nerd. PC > MAC. This taught me how editing promos was done at age 12. I spoke 1337 at age 13. La-li-lu-le-lo madness at age 14, learning HTML when I was 16 (back then, the internet was starting to grow out of this crap). Pick almost any nerd subject and I can respond in kind. Not really a big Star Wars or Star Trek fan, though! Go figure.

I love and primarily listen to Rap and Hip Hop music. I relate to only certain lyrics but I love the creativity and wordplay embedded by the best artists and I’m mostly drawn to well produced or unique beats.

I’m a proud owner of a Regional Emmy Award, won in 2009. I plan on submitting work for more regional nominations. However, I’d preferably like to win or be nominated for a prime time Emmy for writing in the future. 😉

The way to win me over is to provide me with pastry. Doesn’t matter what kind. Although, I’m preferential to fruit-filled danishes, madeleines, and almond bars. Donuts too, throw in some donuts.

The number five is my favorite number. It correlates with many amazing moments in my life and has some spiritual meaning as well.
