I’ve been described as a…
Right down the middle left-brain/right-brain creative technologist.
I’ve always been this unique blend, it seems. My college journey began at UNM with a NASA scholarship in computer science and electrical engineering – satisfying my logical, precise, structured left-brain skills. Yet after graduating, my right brain shouted, “Hey, what about me?” Being one to engage the whole brain, I pursued a second degree in graphic design at The Art Institute of Colorado.
From the moment the right-brain/left-brain myth was debunked, I’ve shed labels, choosing to embrace my identity simply as a creative.
To this day, I love seamlessly blending creativity with pragmatic thinking in everything I do – from visualizing and creating motion graphics, to building bicycles from the frame up! Whether it’s an immersive show-open, or designing and developing a website, I am equally passionate about the creative blend of art and technology.
Cultivating curiosity, in myself and others, is a passion of mine. Whether it’s leading a team, producing a project, or addressing a live audience, spreading creativity and curiosity is my mission—making it magnetically contagious!
I've worn a wide array of hats over the years. From creative director to motion designer; teacher to speaker. Here are a few highlights:
I’m an accomplished public speaker, presenting at industry related conferences. Audiences enjoy the way I demystify how popular motion graphic elements from film were created using Adobe After Effects. I'm equally as comfortable leading captivating intimate workshops as emceeing in front of a large audience.
Over the years, my work has garnered numerous design accolades. From American Advertising Federation awards to being featured in publications like Communication Arts, Print, and HOW Magazine.
My skillset strikes a balance between creativity and analytical problem-solving. I am adept in blending creative expression with technical prowess.
