My name is Eric Thayne. I’m a graphic designer, music producer, and film maker. I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ where I spent a good chunk of my childhood. I’ve since lived in Johannesburg, South Africa; Dubuque, Iowa; Ogden, Utah; and now currently reside in Provo, UT where I’m preparing to graduate from Brigham Young University with a degree in graphic design.
I love all things creative, including design, music, film, entrepreneurship, marketing, dance, and writing. I’ve been creating things ever since I could hold a pencil. I started my own freelance graphic design business when I was 13. I’ve played the piano for 16 years, guitar and drums for 10. I’ve been writing music for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always loved film making.
I’m a YouTuber. My channel is Eric Thayne Music. I spend a lot of time working with talented artists and performers to make interesting music videos for my channel, which I started in March of 2012. Since I’m still in school, working as a freelance graphic designer and film maker, and running a new recording studio, and maintaining my YouTube channel, it’s a wonder how I have any free time.
I’m a Mormon. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It’s a way of life for me, it gives me direction, and I know it’s true. I served a 2-year mission for the Church from 2009–2011 in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
I’ve procrastinated writing in a blog for a long time, but I hope it will give me a medium for expressing my opinions, ideas, concerns, and other thoughts on subjects that I’m interested in.
Thanks for reading!
