Ryne... Graduating from Wartburg College with a Communication Arts degree, in Electronic Media and Public Relations, has spurred a strong interest in the video production and post-production field.
Technology has always been a point of intrigue for me, and with the rapid pace in which everything changes, I currently am experiencing this by working for Apple in West Des Moines, Iowa.
Specializing in video editing and workflow pipelines allows for the delivery of projects that exceed expectations. Using applications that range from Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Photoshop, Motion, and a little bit of everything in-between, makes the production environment a fun and rewarding experience that I translate into the final product.
Tyson... I have an insatiable thirst for perfection. I never stop at good enough, which is how I ended up moving to Des Moines working for Apple, training customers on software. In the past I've managed bands, worked as a Web Marketing Coordinator, and managed a staff of 25 employees for inbound telemarketing sales.
During my time at these positions, I excelled in my respective areas. As the Web Marketing Coordinator at J&P Cycles, my team achieved 1,200% increase in email revenue year over year. I've always been driven to attain higher goals than what others thought possible, and this has pushed me to be successful in delivering results that exceed what is expected.
Like Ryne, technology has been the primer for pushing me to do bigger and better things. My work at Apple keeps me on the cutting edge of new technology entering the marketplace and requires me to have an in-depth understanding on how to work through software intuitively. This has helped in learning advanced software such as Aperture, Filemaker Pro, and Final Cut Pro X.
