Part superhuman, part creative mastermind, I have been designing, developing and producing a variety of media productions for clients all across the country; from identity design to promotional videos, I’ve covered a gamut. With over ten years of graphic design, photographer and video experience, I provide personal, well-researched and developed multimedia projects to meet the needs of my clients.
Born with art in my blood, I was introduced to the world one February evening in 1982, under an east coast moon. My father, a civil engineer, and my mother, an artist herself, surrounded me with the visual arts as a child. My mother spent time throughout her day strumming a guitar or coating a canvas in oil when she wasn’t buggered by my young antics.
As I grew, I showed my own knack for art, learning to draw before I could properly write my own name. It was an escape, an imagination at work, a cognitive skill. The works of my hands would frequent themselves in the kitchen gallery or in the gallery collection.
I grew into my own as a graphic designer as I grew older and took it beyond just a drawing on paper or a design on the electronic machine. I began to explore other avenues beyond what I thought was graphic design. I experimented with photography, illustration, Web development, and even went so far off the grid as to dabble in metalsmithing. With all that, I decided I didn’t want to be just another graphic designer, I wanted more. I wanted to be a well-rounded and multi-talented artist in a multitude of media.
Therefore, this is what I became. I developed into an artist with a desire to learn new things; a heart to persevere over adversity regardless of its size. I became a multimedia developer with a distinct desire to make good design available to everyone. It isn’t just about the large corporations with the million dollar budgets. It’s about good design for companies and clients large and small.
During my decade as a multimedia developer and designer, I have had the privilege to work with many great people and organizations. Below are just a couple of my recent employment opportunities. For further information on my employment and project history, download my resumé.
