Hi, I'm Diesel.
Time for a Backstory
I was born in 1990 at UAB Hospital where my mom was a chemist.
My dad was a photographer & he taught me to navigate MS-DOS at age 5;
I feel like he foresaw the digital shift in the creative landscape and gave me a heads up.
My mom’s dad was a singer. I began producing music at age 15
in addition to learning my dad’s camera and freelancing through high school.
At age 20 after a college internship, I wrote, produced, engineered, and distributed an album.
The album’s reception gave me the confidence to trust my ideas and return to freelancing
while obtaining a marketing management degree to bridge my multimedia skills and my business acumen.
In 2017, about 7 years after that first album,
I became a full time business consultant and media producer.
I’ve been married to my high school crush since July 2011.
We had our first child in 2016.
This life is as fun as it is terrifying
& I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
You can think of this as my coffee table book, my sketch pad, or maybe a traveler’s journal through the rat race.
