I'm a Creative Director based in Northern California. For roughly two decades, I’ve used visual design techniques to help scientists share their ideas.
This work generally falls into one of three categories:
Using images, video and animation to describe complex ideas
Making experimental applications and physical prototypes easier to use
Visualizing the potential impact of developing technologies
I accomplish these tasks by utilizing a combination of visual design, 2D/3D illustration, 2D/3D animation, video production, prototyping tools, CAD and other techniques.
In 2002 I spent a year developing multimedia assets that detailed the IKONOS earth observing satellite. Since then, I’ve continued to work with scientists and engineers, using art to explain their science.
Prior to 2002 I was part of a team that designed and coded the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame + Museum's first website. We also developed multimedia sales and recruiting tools for the Cleveland Indians and Ernst & Young LLP. Later, I worked with Jack Morton Worldwide to develop print, video and interactive assets for companies like PeopleSoft and JP Morgan.
I've co-authored several peer-reviewed papers, and am co-inventor of several patented and patent pending multimedia and user interface technologies.
