Who I Am
I have had a connection to the aesthetics all my life. I have dedicated a great amount of time to the understanding of various theories, techniques, and rules. But, to what end? Most recently, I have come to the conclusion that I enjoy the exploration and creation of art and then taking that knowledge and sharing it those who are interested.
What I Do
As an Art Director, I have continued to push the abilities of my team to allow them to truly excel. I have also continued to learn from my team as I believe that there is always room for improvement. As I am not someone who is content, I will chase improvement. Most recently, I have spearheaded the migration from physical literature to an interactive sales tool that reduced my printing budget by 33% and implemented an interactive kiosk as part of our regular trade show presence leading to higher engagement and quality leads.
I tend to work in a variety of medium: watercolor, gouache, and oils are my preference but I am also highly proficient in the digital such as Adobe for digital storyboarding, painting, layouts, and video, and Autodesk's Maya for 3D. I have been a 3D artist for 20 years and I am skilled in texturing, rendering, and animations.
*note - I was selected to attend the XIII Florence Biennelle 2021 but due to Covid-19 and travel restrictions, I did not attend.
