There’s a lot. But here are a few that I use most often:
Both sides of my brain, equally | Producing | Cinematography | Direction | Art Direction & Design | Edit & Color | Sound Design & Mixing | Motion Graphics | 3D & VFX | Listening
I grew up in a small town. My parents are artists, printers, makers, and all around nice people. They taught me all that stuff. Surrounded by a darkroom, whirring rollers of offset presses, and endless art supplies created a fascinating childhood of dreaming and making. The creative stuff is in my DNA. I’m right at home with a hammer in my hand, a brush or a stylus, sitting at a boardroom conference table(and contributing), or on-set directing a crew in the trenches. I can lead others, run with it, as well as collaborate. I’ve mastered a lot of tools. I have a surprising number of skills. I’m a Mad Scientist. I’ve earned it. Art supplies, comics, and a healthy dose of movies and TV shaped me and my passion for telling stories with images. My deep history and experience in design informs the images I make, moving or other. It’s all about design and process. Where technology, artistry, and story collide is my happy spot.
I have 20 years experience designing and making things(professionally). Commercial, narrative, documentary, and branded content for film and television studios, advertising agencies, national brands, and other interesting folks is just the tip of the iceberg. I paid attention in school and have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Kentucky. I have lectured at various colleges and institutions on design, media production, and how to successfully make things.
I’ve worked with: CBS/PARAMOUNT | PBS | HBO | FOX | DISNEY | MIRAMAX | STARZ | MTV | TIME LIFE | CRITERION | STERLING RICE GROUP | CP+B | AND MANY OTHERS
