- Creative Director
- Philadelphia, PA, USA
- After an early tour of the labor industry and military. Dean decided the Gulag wasn’t his chosen path and went off to school for fine arts in the early 90’s. When the internet was born, Dean transitioned to graphic design and built the first online entertainment website in eastern PA, called NETish. Later he went on to start the first ever internet CyberPub by installing iMacs in taverns and giving people access to the internet, games and email before there were even Cyber cafes. Those ventures enticed Musikfest, the largest free music festival in the US, to acquire him as their first webmaster. Which led him to take up photographing gods like BB King, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Peter Frampton, Kansas and many other ancient rockers.
When Social Media was born, Dean took a position at an internet startup called MyYearbook (MeetMe) as Director of Marketing and Advertising Design. Dean currently works for a Fortune 200 Healthcare company as a Creative Content Strategist on the Learning & Development team to create video productions, training, animations and content strategies for healthcare education.
With 30+ years in Art and 25 years in IT, it has become his mission to bring that diverse experience into the world of NFTs and prepare the world for an NFT Birthing and Art renaissance.
The invention of NFTs was a game changer for artists, who until now, their work was intended to be reproduced, copied, and devalued in the name of exposure. The opportunities NFTs have opened for artists, gamers and De-Fi is beyond imagination, and anything this world is prepared for. Dean joined NFTGamer TV to help ease the barriers into crypto and NFTs for the masses.
