William Faulkner wrote: “The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.” I am George Van Der Volgen, and I moved from Upstate New York to Louisville, Colorado in search of a better life. By trade, I am a Creative Specialist, which simply put means that I wield multimedia like a mad alchemist to create something just right for every project I'm a part of whether I am directing or assisting. My career trajectory has been non-traditional, but it has yielded many rewards in the form of experience and challenge. I do enjoy a good challenge. While being perpetually concurrent with trends and best practices in design and technology is hard work, I always manage to find time to enjoy life via many outdoor and indoor sports and activities, goofing around with my wife Jenna, adventuring, cooking tasty vittles, reading, gaming, or expanding my mind in some way.
