Yassel “Jay'” Orriols was born in Camaguey, Cuba, and raised in Miami, Florida. Currently in his senior year at Florida International University, pursuing my Bachelors in Strategic Communications (PRAAC), and minor in Social Media and E-Marketing. In August of 2019, he earned his associates degree from Miami Dade College, in communication/journalism. During his time at MDC, he got the opportunity to take some film and editing courses, which opened the doors to meeting some unique individuals in the industry, and also opened the doors to my passion for advertising, video editing and production.
Jay has been actively working on several design platforms, such as After Effects, Premiere Pro, Audition, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop for over five years now. Creating a new idea/concept at least once a week, whether it is sketching out a doodle, creating a storyboard, composing a jingle/song, or finalizing a concept for production. From time to time, this is the kind of field that you definitely must stay proactive to maintain what you know. Jay recently got certified in Adobe Premiere Pro in 2018.
Jay is also a full time musician, and a guitar and drum teacher for all levels and ages at a private school in South Florida, as well as independently. He enjoys watching extreme sports, mainly skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding. He looks forward to constantly learning new things and collaborating with interesting creative minds. Jay is expecting to graduate in the summer of 2021.
