About Me

A highly experienced creative professional... 

With over twelve years of experience in the game industry, as well as a background in technology commercialization, I've had the opportunity to wear many different hats.

 

I'm most passionate about applying my unique background in art and entrepreneurship to create dynamic and engaging audience experiences.

... with deep knowledge and experience in 3D animation...

Throughout my career as an animator, I've had extensive experience bringing to life many well-known characters such as Buzz Lightyear, James Bond, and Luke Skywalker. 

 

Most recently, I've been able to contribute my skills and experience to a number of popular MMO titles such as Wizard 101, Pirate 101, and the highly anticipated Crowfall.

...but with an entrepreneurial streak

Recently, I received my Master of Science degree in Technology Commercialization from the University of Texas at Austin where I became immersed in the startup world and got an in-depth, foundational education in what it takes to bring an idea from initial concept, to thriving business.

During my time at UT Austin, I found that I had a knack for creating dynamic and engaging pitch presentations and marketing

 

materials, a skill I have continued to develop after graduating.

 

I've since gone on to work with individuals and organizations developing everything from enhanced ebook platforms to massage therapy services, helping them envision and conceptualize their product offerings, brand identities, and go-to-market strategies. You can click over to the Case Studies section of my website for more information about some of those projects.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, woodworking, video games, remodeling my house, and exploring new places with my wife, Megan. Thanks for stopping by!
