About

History

For over thirteen years I have been working in digital media. My experience ranges from working with globally positioned corporations to managing small freelance projects. Although the majority of my time is spent architecting interactive solutions, my interests include industrial design, generative art, photography, and travel.

Philosophy

In both programming and design, proficiency is learning new techniques, simplifying old techniques and consolidating steps. Making processes and usability efficient, refined, and simple while blurring the lines between design and technology creates a better user experience. With the speed at which technology changes, one can never become stagnant in personal education and professional growth. Understanding the potential of new technologies and experimenting with these technologies in innovative ways leads to the discovery of better solutions.
