Specialties: 3D modeling, 3D animation, storytelling, storyboarding, ActionScript 2, Adobe Creative Suite, Maya, isometric 3D illustration / animation, industrial illustration, E-Learning development, UX / UI design, graphic design, web design, branding, and print design. After spending ten years of my education learning everything I could about 3D art and interactive multimedia - seven years of professional office experience and three years of working for myself in the field, I am confident to say that design and development are my ultimate passions. I strive to bring life to my creations, not just through animation, but through the story, character expression, environmental ambiance and in some cases, science. I have worked on various projects in 3D, graphic design, technical writing and e-learning courses. Currently, I provide 2D and 3D graphic design as well as technical writing support for Patriot Strategies in the development of the MUTC Cyber Operations Environment and event-related activities. This includes development of branding for the CyberTropolis training range and the development of creative ideas and concepts. In the past, my work was provided for clients such as Mori Seiki Academy, Ivy Tech, Harley Davidson, Haas Automation and See Doo Watercraft. I have participated in creating 3D animations depicting medical procedures as well as 3D modelling and animation for CNC machines, graphic design, interactive media and logo design. If I am not working in interactive media, you can often find me spending time with my family or taking up new hobbies. I love to learn new things. Some of the things I have learned on my spare time is traditional painting salsa dancing and jazz drums. I've been a percussionist since I was fifteen and I will occasionally perform on open mic night if I find the chance. Lastly, I love working with a team of smart, creative people who are also eager to keep learning.
