So, you want to know more about me?

You sure you want to jump down that rabbit hole? Well, OK, you asked for it.

I do a lot with video.

Ok, that one’s a freebie, obviously. Been working with film and video since 1998.

I graduated the Art Institute of Dallas in 2001 with applicable knowledge of film and video production, compositing, graphic design, 3D modeling, and 2D/3D animation.

I'm a husband and a daddy.

My family kicks ass. No, seriously, we're all in martial arts, but more on that later. My wife is awesome and my son is my treasure.

I can draw.

I adopted an anime-ish style during high school. Most of my earlier work consists of (um...gifted) females. However, my later works have greatly matured.

You can check out my artwork over at my personal website: www.timtruelove.com/portfolio/ or my DeviantArt page.

I’m in taekwondo.

I’m 37 years old and decided my physical activity just wasn’t hard enough, so this is a way to up the ante.

I’m musically inclined.

I can play the tenor saxophone...probably. I did in high school. But, I probably can't hold my embouchure...so... maybe... I compose...bands are cool. I like music.

I’m a car fanatic.

I’ve owned (in this order):

1984 Chevrolet Silverado Short-bed 5.0L – Yellow
1993 Mustang LX 2.3L Manual – White
1993 Mustang LX Convertible 2.3L Auto – Red
2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.4L auto – Silver
1990 Chevrolet Camaro RS 5.0L – Red (^_^) (still have it)
2005 Mazda 3 2.0L – White (still have it)
1985 Toyota MR2 4AGE NA – White
1985 Toyota MR2 4AGE NA – White
2010 Mazda 3S Hatchback 2.5L – Celestial Blue Mica (I miss this car)
2010 Ram 1500 Ext. Cab 4.7L V8 – Silver
2015 Ford F150 Quad-cab 2.7L Ecoboost – Silver
1991 Camaro RS T-Top 5.7L TBI swap – Blue

I’m a graphic designer.

I’m also a web designer, front-end developer, UI/UX designer, and professional marketer.

I’m a big, geeky gamer.

I own almost 600 video games and game systems. I've been collecting since 1986 with the first being a Nintendo Entertainment System.

I love boudoir photography.

Before doing wedding videography, I did boudoir portraits. Love doing it! I'll do concept photography, too.

I'm a big fan of Disney Princesses.

Yup. Big 'ol man-boy over here likes the princesses. Belle is my favorite followed by Ariel and then Elsa (who's actually a queen! What?!).

I love cosplay.

You can find me going to Dallas ComicCon dressed as Link from Legend of Zelda...or not...whatever I rocked it. BTW, I made that Master Sword, the sheath, and the Hylian Shield (not pictured) out of craft foam!
