I am Drew Liknes. I am 20 years old. Born, raised, and currently living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Since a young age, I have always had a knack for digital media. I first starting using computers at the young age of 3, playing my favourite video games Road Rash, Need For Speed, and Hot Wheels. During my early teens, I gained interest in YouTube and other social media platforms. I have created several videos, some of which have grossed thousands of views.
After graduating high school, I had to think of career ideas. It was at this time I decided to take my first step into my career of new media. I took Photoshop I & II continuing education courses at Mount Royal University. After finishing those courses, I knew this was the right direction I wanted to take.
Now I have graduated from the New Media Production & Design course at SAIT. The program has taught me the fundamentals of new media. Everything from video and audio production, graphic design, photography, photo manipulation, animation, flash, web design and development, 2D and 3D modelling and animation, application development and design, and an abundance of other media-related skills.
I am an Adobe Certified Associate in:
- Illustrator CC 2015
- Photoshop CC 2015
- InDesign CC 2015
- Premiere Pro CC 2015.
