Who is Will Erbes?

Hello! I’m Will Erbes. I am a Digital Media Production and Advertising student at Drake University. I’m originally from Burnsville, Minnesota, but I’m currently residing in Des Moines, Iowa for school.

I excel in digital media, and am proficient in many Adobe tools. I love working with digital software, and I’m always getting better at working with different digital mediums.

I’m proficient in:

  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe After Effects
  • Adobe Audition
  • Sony Vegas
  • And More!

I learn fast, too, so if It’s on a computer, I can figure it out.

Right now I’m learning about web design. You can see previous versions of this website here and here. If you ask me, it’s a pretty large improvement.

Additionally, I’m a little bit of an audiophile. I have a fairly large vinyl collection, and I have a 3-speaker setup in my dorm room so I can get the best possible sound.

To my neighbors: sorry not sorry!

You would think that the Goodwin-Kirk dorms at Drake wouldn’t be a great place for a sound system, but the acoustics are actually really good!

I like to listen to a lot of different music, but here are some of my current favorites: Wide Awake by Parquet Courts, Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit by Courtney Barnet, and Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You by Big Thief.

I’m always looking for new stuff to listen to, so feel free to email me at will.erbes@drake.edu with any music recommendations.

Video games have also been a very big part of my life. Some of my favorite games includes Disco Elysium, the RPG where you play an alcoholic detective navigating a grizzly murder.

Or Outer Wilds, where you navigate a miniature solar system while stuck in a time loop.

Recently I’ve been having a lot of fun with Overwatch 2, Blizzard-Activision’s revamped hero shooter.

I, Will Erbes, am always looking for a new challenge! I’m always expanding the list of software that I can use, and I am sure my creative skills can be utilized in many different projects.

If you need someone dependable who can work through problems, I’m your guy. I have multiple years of customer service experience working at Clive’s Roadhouse, so I know how important it is to get things right the first time.
