I have over 15 years of agency and client service experience and a range of motion graphics, design, video production, compression, and concepting skills. Combining my professional style and tenacious work ethic, I’ve become the “Swiss Army Knife” of Creative and Virtual Event worlds.

There have been several awards won in my career on both a national and local level from Webbys to Tellys to Addys. However, there are two projects that stand out for me the most as a personal achievement. The first is the National Pro Comm Professional Excellence award for Video Production awarded to me for the Commerce One e-Marketplace video. This was one of the first videos I was allowed to Direct and concept 100% and to have it well received on a national level still means a lot to me. The second is the AMD VIRTUAL IT EXPERIENCE which won the Horizon Gold medal the year it came out. Both versions 1.0 and 2.0 were over 2 million dollars and the second came in on time and under budget even though there was more involved with it.
