I have spent many, many, years as an Art Director / 3d artist in the computer games industry and also as a contract 3d artist and media developer. I have worked for Take 2 Games, Virgin Interactive, Westwood, EA Games, Microprose Software in addition to contracting with many others. During my experience, I have worked on a variety of projects from video games, movies, commercials, 3d visualization projects, architectural renderings, product visualizations, and animations for web and non-web applications. I have also been a successful freelance media contractor for many years and have extensive experience in web technologies, HTML, interface design, and interactive media design. Some of my clients include Interactive Services, Walmart, RGA, IBM, Guthy|Renker, Varian Medical Systems, EA, PNC Bank and many more. I have experience with 3d modeling, Animation, Storyboarding as well as HTML5, PHP, CSS3, Jquery, Javascript, and all areas of web design and development. I have been teaching online since 2006 and currently teach @ Southern New HampShire University in Graphic Design/Game Art. As a result of my professional experience, I have been able to share that knowledge through teaching at the college level. I am also an Instructional Designer which allows me to bridge the gap between gaming, technology, media, and instruction. My main goal is to combine my passion and experience with education, games, art, design, and technology into one format that engages and compels students.
