I have been drawing since I was 11, some 39 years ago.
I studied at The Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). Excelled at fine art, chose to major in Media Arts. Studied film, video and sound. There I learned all the skills needed to shoot, direct, edit those mediums.
While pursuing a Media Arts major, I discovered computer graphics, still in it's infancy.
This is where I came to an Epiphany. Here was a new medium, that incorporated everything I had previously learned into one new medium. Not only that, but it had new dimensions, interactivity, feedback, randomness, AI. I was hooked.
The next 12 years I learned and grew with the industry. Learning everything from how to create and manipulate digital imagery and create animations, to interface design and interactive authoring.
My experience that ranges from project managing international clients on large custom software interface designs, to producing interactive kiosks, including the creation and management of all elements of production.
Not to mention drawing funny pictures to make the kids laugh!
