Edgar Vargas

ProfileOriginally from dusty Eastern Washington, I moved to the Seattle area where I attended Lake Washington Technical College and pursued the Multimedia Design program. In addition to studying video production to obtain the Audio/Video degree, I cultivated my knowledge in other areas of multimedia, and graduated with a degrees in the Print Design and Web Design programs as well.

While in Washington I worked for the City of Redmond for the Old Fire House Teen Center, as the Computer Lab Coordinator. It was a rewarding position that allowed me to expand my web design skills, but I saw the need to be in an environment where my audio/video skills would be more in demand. So I relocated to San Jose, CA and I’ve been here ever since.

I spent a few years working at a local UPS store where I had the opportunity to further sharpen my design skills by creating business cards and large print banners. Then in late 2012 I was able to gain a position with Mountz, a torque tool company. I started out as an intern and worked my way to a full-time position as the Marketing Videographer. I created all of Mountz’s video related media, as well as helped with photography. Over the years I have built my skills and experience and have become more proficient in my pre and post production abilities.

I’ve also maintained a small business of my own, that has allowed me to further expand my experience, by working with other local videographers. This has presented situations that I might not otherwise experience with my job at Mountz. It has allowed me to interact with interesting people from some of Silicon Valleys biggest companies. I’ve been able to work as a P.A., second shooter, and primary shooter on projects that included Netflix, Pebble, IBM, Synopsis and ARM to name a few.
