Specialties: E-Learning development, UX / UI design, graphic design, branding, 3D modeling, 3D animation, storytelling, storyboarding, ActionScript 2, Adobe Creative Suite, Maya, isometric 3D illustration / animation, industrial illustration 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 e-learning courses for 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. I would love to join a team of smart, creative people who are itching to show the world something revolutionary!
