ABOUT ME

﷯Primary Skills: Video Editing, Filmmaking, Video Project Management Education: Full Sail University (Computer Animation, 2003), University of Texas at Austin (Game Project Management, 2015) Art and technology have always been a large part of my life. Much of my early career was focused on game development, and I spent a lot of time in that space as a 2D/3D artist, designer, producer, and game director on various projects. My work there lead me to many opportunities, including a stint at UT Austin, where I studied under the tutelage of industry luminaries like Warren Spector (Deus Ex, System Shock) and Richard Garriott (Ultima). I frequently travel to and speak at gaming events, and continue building relationships with many wonderful people in gaming. In 2013, I created my first documentary feature based around my endeavors in game development. Since that time, I have been fortunate enough to maintain a career in freelance video production, producing content for several clients as an editor and on location producer. As of 2018, I have transitioned careers to video services full time.
