Here's my story
Posido Vega - Multi-Passionate Creative
Posido Vega – Multi-Passionate Creative

Hi! I’m Posido Vega, a multi-passionate creative. I’m an artist, bass player, jazz theory enthusiast, children’s book author and illustrator, and SEO 😅. My journey has been a whirlwind of creativity, music, personal growth, and digital innovation.

Brushstrokes and Boats

As early as I can remember, I’ve been an artist at heart. The canvas and I are old friends, and the smell of oil paint in the studio feels like home.

In 2003, I quit my job as a high school art teacher and lacrosse coach and embarked on an adventure to the rainy city of Seattle, where I found my muse in the boats navigating the Puget Sound.

Grooves and Gigs

Music is another lifelong passion of mine. I picked up the bass guitar back in 1995, and since then it’s been an unforgettable journey.

I never thought 4-strings would take me cross-country for a couple decades from big venues, to cozy coffee shops, and to people’s living rooms.

I enjoy playing all styles of music, especially  jazz, gospel, rock, funk, indie, and world music.

A Dad’s Tale in a Pandemic World

2020 brought a new role into my life — fatherhood. It was during the lockdowns of the COVID-19 pandemic, changing diapers every 30 minutes, and complete lack of sleep, that I got an idea for a children’s book. 

A few years later, in 2023, life threw me a curveball — I lost my dad.

While spending time with him in the hospital, amidst the beeping monitors, I wrote and illustrated the children’s book that I imagined when my daughter was born.

Then nearly 8 months to the tee, it was like Groundhogs Day all over again — I lost my mom. Only this time, it was completely unexpected.

The Digital Frontier

My journey into tech began in 2013. I taught myself HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript. I learned how to set up databases, spin up EC2 instances, and deliver digital products from S3 buckets, with AWS (Amazon Web Services).

And I really started getting into developing WordPress websites for local musicians and small businesses.

Freelancing was fun and during that time, SEO became my secret superpower, and I watched the websites that I built soar through the ranks.

As life grew busier, I wanted more efficiency. So, I picked up Python automation scripting — a skill that not only squashed boring repetitive tasks but also proved invaluable in my SEO endeavors.

A Harmonious Blend

You might be wondering how these seemingly disparate passions come together.

That’s the beauty of life — it’s a canvas waiting to be painted, a stage where every note and every word contributes to the grand design.

My artistic sensibility infuses my music with depth and emotion. My experiences as a musician enrich my creativity, both on canvas and in the digital realm.

Fatherhood and authorship add layers of purpose, inspiring me to create positive change.

And technology makes the process of it all so much fun.
