Kramer graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor's Degree in Video Production. While attending OU, he DJ’ed for ACRN and was a member of the Ohio University Men's Crew team, Mountain Bike Club, and SnowCats. His digital short won the underclassman division of the OU 48 Film Festival. During his free time he recycled old skateboards into custom hand-cut cruiser boards with LED lights for safer street and night riding. When demand increased, he launched and funded a Kickstarter campaign. This gave him the ability to professionally manufacture his boards. He moved to Hallandale Beach Florida and became an Enrichment Specialist at a children's mental health facility. While there, he taught Science, Social Skills, Nutrition and Fitness. Some memorable moments from freelancing include the Adventure Fishing World Championships in the Everglades and a documentary on worker's rights, which helped end a strike and win back jobs. All of these experiences helped motivate him to apply for his Master's in Fine Arts.
