A brief history of Declan Flynn's

23-year career in the
creative industry in Tampa Bay

My career began at a small Internet development company located in a strip-mall before being recruited by one of the largest dot-com agencies in the country. When the Internet bubble burst, for me that was in 2000, I dabbled in video post-production until a small manufacturing company hired me to model their entire product line in 3D. They didn't think I could do it, so I offered them a 90-day challenge. Three years later, I earned the title Art Director and later Creative Director and eventually went freelance as a film and TV director and editor, producing TV spots and other creative for a small ad agency. Today as a Creative Producer for my local Film Commission, I just celebrated my 23rd year working as a professional in the creative industry, and it's been one heck of a ride. And yes, I nailed the 90-day 3D challenge!
