Zero Dean: Writer | Humorist | Photographer & CG Artist

Zero DeanFormerly a Senior Artist at Rockstar Games — as well as a Los Angeles portraits photographer — I began a unique & multi-faceted journey beyond my comfort zone in 2010.

It is from this journey that I use real-life experiences as a foundation for learning and sharing life’s lessons.

My story in brief (see the full version here):

"Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s fine. It's not their journey to make sense of. It's yours." - Zero DeanIn 2009, I quit a decent paying job (as a computer graphics artist) during the height of the global financial crisis.

I felt my life, although comfortable, had gotten off track and I was no longer fulfilling my potential or taking advantage of my unique combination of talents.

I wanted to get back in touch with the things I was most passionate about in life as well as intentionally push myself beyond comfort.

I’d read somewhere that “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” (Neale Donald Walsch) and wanted to explore that as a means for personal growth.

"You don't get over the fear of doing something by not doing it."And thus began the journey of my lifetime.

A journey that turned into the most difficult thing I’d ever committed to. It forced me to face challenges I never expected and it completely turned my world on its side.

It changed my life, my relationships, and my view of the world.

In short, it changed everything.

Today, my continuing journey bears little resemblance to what it once was, but I am now a wholehearted advocate of the path less traveled.

I use my past and present day experiences as a way to share what I’ve learned with the world. And when I’m not doing that, I share humor & comics and art & photography
