About Me

My name is Nicholas Blackford Aka Lenny and Friends, I was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. I’ve always had a passion for the creative fields and wanted to be an animator when i was younger. In 2006 I was accepted to the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts; it was there, that my creative journey would take a definitive shape. I studied drawing, painting, animation, and design. Three years later, my family and I migrated the United States where I enrolled in Atlantic Tech specializing in multimedia and later Broward College. This spawned a career working for companies such as J&R Adventures, and Newsmax Media.

I had the privilege of working with my father Richard Hugh Blackford at the Yardabraawd Gallery in Sunrise, FL. Specializing in a Multimedia/Social Media role in my free time, where I learned valuable professional skills such as Direct Mail campaign, Social Media Management, Product Photography, Graphics Design, and Video Editing. In both my academic and professional life, I have been consistently praised as adaptable by my professors and peers. Whether working on academic, extracurricular, or professional projects. I apply proven teamwork, multitasking and critical thinking skills, which I hope to leverage in my role as a Creative Professional.
