Meet Arcadia Web Designer and Developer: Joey Adkins

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joey Adkins.

Joey, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was a recording/live sound engineer in the Las Vegas area for close to 10 years. My son was born in 2010 and I realized that the working in the audio industry is difficult when you have a newborn. You will either be in the studio 24/7 or on the road and I didn’t want to miss the most crucial years of my kids’ lives so I bought a book on HTML and started learning how to develop websites. We decided to move back to the LA area to be closer to our families and I managed to score an entry level web development position at The Uprising Creative in Silverlake CA. I’ve been working there and doing freelance for the last 5 years.

Has it been a smooth road?
Not smooth. There has been a lot of time spent on the Google’s trying to figure out what I’m doing.

Tell us about your childhood, what were you like growing up?
I was a pretty typical southern CA kid. I did a lot of skateboarding and snowboarding. I was a big part of the Orange County music scene playing in Bands. My main interest at the time was definitely music.

What is your favorite childhood memory?
That’s kind of tough question to answer because there have been so many good memories but one of my proudest childhood memories was watching my dad graduate from the police academy.

What are your plans for the future?
Right, my main plan is raising my kids to be good people and providing them the best life I can give them.
