Visual CV

To be a contributing member of a challenging, creative work place that produces meaningful media productions and learning opportunities.

With an established talent for computer graphics and creative technologies and a solid understanding of the digital media production process, I am a well suited candidate for a creative technical multimedia position. With a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering I am well versed in analytical problem solving techniques, advanced mathematics, physics, and real world design procedures. I have shown long term commitment through my employment history and my dedication to the independent film, arts, technology, and learning communities. I have shown the ability to organize myself and others in startup environments composed of both corporate and independent initiatives. My familiarity with modern open source internet technologies gives me a ready skill set to adapt traditional media projects for convergence with the internet. I love the digital arts and I am ready to enter into the creative process at any level; from production artist to project manager.
