XKY (pronounced “Sky”) is a graphic designer, animator, music producer, videographer, and junior software engineer with a wide array of experience ranging from graphic design to developing applications and tools for Software as a Service (SAAS) applications. As an artist he has the passion to draw images and animate them. Due to his eclectic taste in music, XKY enjoys producing songs that incorporate obscure samples from vinyl records with synth instruments.
Currently XKY uses his knowledge of HTML5/CSS, .NET, and C# to create both desktop and web applications that interact with SQL/MySQL databases. With several projects under his belt, XKY excels at working both with a team and alone. He is an ethical individual who is forward thinking, highly motivated, innovative, open to new ideas, and dedicated to working on projects that educate the youth.
As time moves forward, XKY hopes to help create educational animated movies and produce songs that transcend their entertainment value by encouraging the youth to develop their skills in critical thinking and creativity. XKY also hopes to become an audio engineer for both music and movies. Furthermore, XKY has the desire to not only direct movies and music videos but also actively promote his work to the youth through e-commerce and social media. Outside of his work, XKY spends his time reading books, surfing the internet, learning to read music, and continuing to pursue his passion for drawing.
Prior to his graduation from the University of Texas at Austin, XKY completed a research requirement for his degree by independently creating an animated narrative video highlighting the social and financial problems within the United States’ public education system. Initially XKY used his interviewing skills to record an interview with a local community leader in the city of Austin, Texas who has experience with mentoring troubled youth. XKY then managed to quickly learn Adobe After Effects and use the software to construct an animation that provided a visual representation of the community leader’s dialogue. In addition to the animation, XKY also arranged the sound design and scored the music for the project using Pro Tools. The video specifically aimed to bring awareness to parents living in poor districts about the financial repercussions of bad child behavior, and the possible origin of their children’s unenthusiastic attitude toward school.
As a software engineer XKY is able to work in a fast paced entrepreneurial environment with rapidly changing needs. Most recently he has worked as a software engineer for an interactive advertising agency named Sparksight that specializes in event technology and a touchscreen content management service called Leading Reach. While at Sparksight he was responsible for tools development and quality assurance for customer facing applications used in trade show environments. Using his creative and technical talents, he co-developed Windows applications in C# that gathered sales lead data generated at events and tradeshows. XKY also conducted regression tests on Sparksight’s applications for devices such as the iPad and Android device to uncover software bugs and ensure client and application integrity.
