About the Author
Nick Campbell grew up a nerd in Detroit, the oldest son of a firefighter and a roller-skating teacher. In middle school, he won first prize on America's Funniest Home Videos with his impression of Edward Scissorhands imitating Michael Jackson. He later landed a string of pretty silly jobs as a yo-yo salesman, DJ at a roller-rink wedding, and one of those snobby record store employees. His love for audio engineering, Pro Tools, and Macs crossed paths with a short animated film, and a new passion for motion and design was born.
In 2009, Nick left Digital Kitchen to start an iPhone photo app company and to focus more time on creating tutorials and designing products for Greyscalegorilla. You can see his random bloggy-blog stuff at Quick Multiball or watch him pretend to be a musician over at Campbell and Monson. Lately, Nick has been speaking to creative types at places like SXSW, SCAD, OFFF, and Hyper Island about how to end up with a job doing work you love to do.
