Interactive and Entertainment Design Professional

My name is Patrick Johnson. I was born and raised along the North Central California Coast and around the Salt Lake Area in Utah. I grew up with themed entertainment and games as a part of my life, and have vivid memories of watching star wars and old cartoons growing up. After high school, I went to Brigham Young University - Idaho, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Design and Technology with an emphasis in Entertainment and Interactive Design. Since then I have worked with popular companies such as Microsoft and Disney and I am always looking to work with others. Right now I work as a freelance designer while working on my application for grad school to the University of Utah's Entertainment Arts & Engineering Program. I am always learning and love teaching what I learn!
