I was born and raised in Ohio. My father was an engineer by trade, Civil War buff, and amateur film maker. My mother was the owner of a small watch repair shop.
I was introduced to copy writing at a young age by my father who insisted on his son’s help for film projects. This included on location shooting at historical sites and post production in the studio. My father made a documentary on the Battle of Gettysburg long before the current interest in the period. Probably too young to be filming Civil War reenactments at the age of 8, I tried not to flinch while cannons were firing.
I graduated from high school and attended Kent State University during the Reagan era of the 1980s. While in school I started a small but successful professional audio services company. It was my main source of income for nearly ten years. During this time I also enjoyed working as a night-club disc-jockey. I prided myself on being an excellent music mixer and entertainer. I worked at large clubs in Cleveland, Columbus, and Akron-Canton. The bulk of my club DJ career was at a very popular local restaurant located mid-way between Akron and Canton, Ohio.
Currently I own Perfect Media Productions, LLC and also work for a non-profit in the marketing department. I have been very lucky in that the core of the people who I am subcontracted to through my company and the people who I work with at my place of employment have all been great sources of learning and inspiration.
My endeavors at Perfect Media Productions, LLC include assisting people in creating various online media in the forms of web video and photography. Clickable media can significantly augment social media and content marketing strategies.
I also create audio for radio broadcast and podcast productions, commercials, and flash briefings. My goal is to have your project not sound like an infomercial. My work can be sampled on the “Billy Dees Podcast” available on Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Stitcher and Spotify.
I have always enjoyed science and in particular physics. It wasn’t until my 30’s that my interest in the universe truly blossomed. I have become intrigued with how we are part of a world that is not limited to the Earth itself. As an individual I am very passionate about subjects relating to the human condition, the existence and fragility of all life, and our place in the universe.
I am on Twitter @BillyDees and have enjoyed interacting with bloggers, podcasters, and news junkies. Sharing concepts and learning about other cultures from all over the world has been very fun and rewarding.
