Hi I’m Joe and I created Taz’s Mania Studios. In case you are wondering, my last name is pronounced Taz Nik, hence the name Taz’s Mania Studios. I have experience in many different artistic areas. My photography has been published in The Philadelphia Business Journal, 2011 Valley Forge Visitors Guide and on various other promotional and marketing materials. I have also created graphic designs and written features for local tourism for two years. I hold a B.S. in Business Administration from Villanova University.

I am a huge fanboy of Blizzard Entertainment. I believe they are the pinnacle of creativity. I admire their incorruptable commitment to quality products. Their work has greatly affected me since I first saw Warcraft I in 1994 and I hope that Taz’s Mania Studios will one day do the same for others.

The journey is just beginning…
