First Person Biography

Hello and welcome. My name is Nate Kresse. I am currently the Creative Director at Stamm Media, a small interactive shop and A/V integrator located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My team builds tools for trade shows, live events, and permanent installations. I divide my day playing designer, animator, coder, project manager, and A/V technician.

This makes me happy.

I was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin and at the age of 15 moved to Auckland, New Zealand where I attended high school. While in New Zealand I began a short stint as a 3D modeler, a self-taught skill I picked up while hanging out in my mother's office.

Deciding to go to college, I returned to the States and lugged heavy equipment around long enough to earn a BFA in Film Production from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. After graduation I accepted a web design position at a local I.T. firm and immediately doubled their size. 12 years later I still have the same boss, but not the same job. I fell in love with the web for years and gradually expanded into the larger sphere of creative technology.

This website exists so that the things I do during my days and weeks will have somewhere to pile up, settle, show their age, maybe make me look foolish, and ultimately lead me forward.
