I was destined to be a designer, an artist and a “creative.” As a child I spent free time re-designing VHS covers, creating comics and mixing music on my dual cassette tape recorder. Nothing interested me more than creativity and the challenge of finding a way to make something more interesting.
Now, I find myself obsessed with the beauty of typography and perfected color in images or film. For this reason, I have chosen to delve into an exploration on film, mostly focusing on documentary and experimental for the time being. Script development for the third Ecneconni experimental short, collaborative work with Anthony Ngo from the Colorado Art Institute, and research for a feature film in the works (it’s a secret).
A Little History:
I have previous experience in the print and large format graphics industry and decided in 2006 to return to school and pursue my Bachelors degree in order to have a better understanding of motion design, film, and interactive.
In 2007 I joined the Army Reserves as a Psychological Operations Specialist to help pay for school and to experience adventure away from the confines of a nine to five job. I obtained a secondary Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) in multimedia illustration in 2009 and was awarded the distinguished honor graduate. In 2010-2011 I deployed to Bahrain as a multimedia illustrator for the US Army, supporting our Navy’s Fifth Fleet command. I am currently in charge of the Print Detachment at the 324th Psychological Operations Company in Aurora, Colorado.
