My name is Matthew McDaniel, and it's very nice to meet you! I've been creating things for over sixteen years. I graduated from Kendall College of Art and Design with a degree in digital media with a focus in film production.
I've worked at multiple places in various different roles. Places such as:
I'm proficient in the Adobe Suite programs which include but are not limited to Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere, and AfterEffects. I'm also familiar with other programs such as Sketch, Clip Studio Pro, ProTools, and Reason. A few miscellaneous skills include drone piloting, videography/photography, creative writing, focus group research, and basic accessibility training.
When I was very young, I was taught by my grandpa how to create things with my hands. Starting out with model houses and model planes made from scratch, I was bit by the creative bug. Ever since then I've been getting my hands on every new technique, medium, or program and running with it. It's the best feeling in the world to be a part of something that creatively tells a narrative through visuals. I'm also all for learning new techniques and programs and enjoy wearing many hats in the art world, hence the name "Many Hats Matt" – plus I just love wearing hats.
