Medium Bio:

Hi! I’m Abe, and I’m a multi-hyphenate creative and entrepreneur from Long Beach, CA. I work with other creatives and entrepreneurs to direct big ideas through web, video and crowdfunding campaigns. Top-shelf themes running throughout my projects are innovation, versatility, intersections, and play. I value collaboration, hard work, and always, always, finding a way. My creativity comes from a mash-up of mediums, including film, XR, music, design, and online education. I’m a big picture person who enjoys connecting people, culture, and ideas that might otherwise go unnoticed. I believe that there are plenty of cool stories yet to tell, much good to be done, and more amazing people to meet and work with.

Long Bio (8 random facts):

  1. I was born on an island in the South Pacific on the same day as a famous Earth, Wind & Fire song.
  2. From age 9-20 music was my life. I played the trumpet, sung R&B, marched snare in a drum line and even toured with a Drum & Bugle Corps.
  3. I worked in instructional design building online art classes, designing multimedia presentations, and helping run a professional video and voiceover studio for almost 5 years. I created systems to convert, edit, and manage a library of nearly 10,000 videos for educational distribution. I quickly became the go-to guy in the online division of the company for anything and everything video related. I eat codecs for breakfast. With bacon.
  4. I co-wrote, directed, and produced a $15,000, 70+ member stage production at the age of 21. I also acted in a scene, helped score the music, build the set, design the playbill, and did all of the multi-camera editing and authoring for the DVD. Time of my life.
  5. I’ve edited everything from sketch comedy shorts to commercials to 3D animated video game trailers shown at E3 (The Electronic Entertainment Expo).
  6. I believe everything is connected and everyone is relevant.
  7. I was one of three guys in my senior class of 400 accepted to a UC (University of California) right after high school. The other two were the Salutatorian and the Class President. And me, the anomaly with nothing special to his name.
  8. I cook. I clean. I care about kids. Mama had a daycare. Mama taught me well. 🙂
