Thought you guys might enjoy this video about making apps. If you were stuck in a hospital bed, with the use of only one arm, could you do what Chad did? (cool story video) :) http://go.clickmeter.com/whoisChad/

Introduction
I grew up all over the US, as the daughter of an Air Force officer. Yeah, it was hard moving around every 3 or 4 years, but it gave me the ability to adapt much more quickly to new environments, new people, and build new friendships. I can't say I'd trade it, and even today, I still get the itch to move around more often...or at least travel! I look forward to more traveling adventures in the near future. :D

I followed a natural path of interest for me and studied Media Arts and Animation - I love a well told story, and my passion is animation and visual storytelling.

I have found that I have an interesting sense of humor when my mind goes into "animation imagination mode," some of the simplest comments or stories, will come off especially hilarious to me. It often keeps me smiling. :D

It has been my experience that, while college may prepare you with technical skills for a job, it doesn't necessarily show you how to go about getting there, or how to take any other path than the "job." Who really wants that? - not me! D:
haha: "not it" "NoT it", not IT!"
so...which one of you got stuck with the job?

Since college, I have taken and resigned from multiple jobs, created for many freelance projects, studied more animation, got involved in network marketing, made new friends, traveled to Paris and back, discovered internet marketing, found my true spirit, and so much more.

In order to reach your dreams, you have to have a path and a plan to get there. It is ESSENTIAL to build a network, brand yourself, continue learning skills, and have an absolute positive mindset in order to get where you want to go...even if it IS that dream job with Pixar and Disney ;)

The great thing is that these skills will actually work for any industry or passion that you want to pursue, as long as you are willing to put the time in and take action. Success does not come overnight.

It is my desire to use my skills and experiences from the creative realm in order to help others better visualize the concepts of personal branding, relationship networking and internet marketing - all done in an entertaining and easy to understand way.

I'm looking forward to meeting more new friends, and collaborating and working with some of you in the future! Let's travel together, and see where this adventure takes us!
