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 programs. After three years of studying I graduated with three AAS degrees in video production, web and print design.

Upon graduating I worked for the City of Redmonds 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 worked at a UPS store where I sharpened my design skills by creating business cards, fliers and large print banners. In 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 built my skills and experience and have become more proficient in my abilities.

Edgar Vargas I’ve also maintained a small business of my own that has allowed me to expand my experience, by working with other local videographers. 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 The SETI Institute, Netflix, Pebble, IBM and ARM to name a few.
