Wikipedia defines a Creative Professional as someone “who is employed for the extraction of skills in creative endeavors.” During my 10+ years working as a Creative Professional, I have gained experience in Creative Direction, Graphic Design, UX Design, Product Design, Marketing, Distribution and Project Management. I also possess a core fundamental knowledge of conventional art and design principles expressed through Conceptual Art, Sculpting, Illustration and Special Make-Up Effects.
All of my current and past endeavors have provided me the opportunity to gain hands-on design, production, and marketing experience with some of the world’s foremost entertainment properties and brands, including Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Nickelodeon and Walt Disney and large corporations including Mattel, Hasbro, Baylor College of Medicine and Shell Oil.
With this background I have developed a proficiency in multiple software applications including the most recent installments of Adobe Creative Suite while pursuing further knowledge in HTML and 3D applications. I am skilled in both digital (i.e. Wacom Tablet and SensAble's FreeForm) and non-digital mediums which include pencils, brushes, airbrush, clay, wax and silicone.
I am pursuing opportunities which will allow me to apply my professional knowledge as well as further expand and improve my creative skills.
