About me

My Story

Self taught nerd for art and tech. As far back as I can remember I have had a passion for diving head first into creative projects. My ability to continue adapting and learning from the ever changing world around us allows me to consistently create awe inspiring projects, regularly exceeding client expectations.

Try and put me in a box, I dare you! My diverse skills set allows me to express my creativity in all forms of media.

My Recent Work

Augmented Reality

Army national guard

Experience the power of augmented reality (AR), I designed and composited a series of interactive poster experiences—five total—with messaging tailored specifically around recruitment and retainment for the Wyoming Army National Guard. 

Simply scan this poster’s QR code; and watch this experience come to life, complete with a live-action actor explaining the benefits of joining (or remaining in) the Army National Guard. 

Once that particular experience ends, the user’s phone screen transforms again, this time to open up a menu of additional options to explore, and ways to take action on the information presented. 

Over time, data provided by each unique user experience will go far in helping enhance the Army National Guard’s future recruitment efforts, as well as provide clear, trackable data about how the information provided by the posters is being used. 

Visit Cheyenne

Videograpghy

Living in Cheyenne has given me the opportunity to regularly shoot public events and landscapes all around the city. This has allowed me to build an archive of general tourism content.

Earlier this year, our friends at Visit Cheyenne asked if I could use that very footage and throw together something special for a time of hardship. Check it out!

Passion Projects

photo retouching

Photo compositing and graphic design is where I got my start in content creation. My passion for some of my favorite musicians inspired me to learn the Adobe Creative Suite. 

Education

Adobe max 

2019

Attending Adobe Max 2019 in Los Angeles was amazing. An inspiring experience where I was able to share  knowledge with some of the best creators around the world. 

Self taught

Arguably my greatest trait, my self education is slave to my work ethic.

My passion for always wanting to push my own limits in content creation has lead me into a diverse set of skills.

These skills include Videography, Photography, Graphic Design, Photo-Retouching, Web Development and much more.
