Hello. I'm a DESIGNER & Art Director based in SeattlE, WA. I SPECIALIZE in UX, UI, Motion & 3D FOR VIRTUAL AND MOBILE SPACES.
Camp Pokémon is a free iOS app designed to be an introduction to the world of Pokémon designed for users between the ages of 6-9. I played the role of both Project Lead as well as Art Director.
From the initial pitch to the final deliverable, I worked closely with the client in architecting the entire experience while guiding a team of artists, developers, and QA Engineers. I also played the role of lead 3D and 2D artist, setting the tone and direction for the final product.
Camp Pokémon was featured in Apple's "Best New Apps" and hit over 1 million downloads in it's first two weeks of release.
All animation, illustration, 3D Modeling and post-work done by me. All work done prior to 2012.
I directed and produced this bumper for the 2012 Indianapolis International Film Festival. Beginning with the IIFF's core mission of "Creating a shared experience around film", I developed the idea of forest creatures accidentally witnessing cinema for the first time, yet still having the innate desire to share the experience with one another.
Collaborating with a team of designers, developers, and UX designers, I led the full redesign of Pokémon.com. Along with the classic Pokémon site features, our team incorporated entirely new content, such as the Trainer Club, a new stamp based achievement system, and personalized profiles suited for a young audience.

These were the style boards for the Dow Agrosciences Grower's World kiosk. For an upcoming trade show, the client was interested in making their product portfolio both interactive and approachable. We formulated the idea of a disk with four distinct seasons, each with it's own hot points and subsequent product information. The final app runs on V3Touch hardware.

Once the Valves section is active, users can then drag each valve they would like to obtain more information into the central heart, where it is then viewable with full 3D rotation.

As Foundry's Visual Design Director, I led an extensive re-branding effort, guiding and involving the entire team through a series of exercises focused on finding the personality of both our team and our work. We ultimately settled on the name "Foundry" and set to work building a brand language that would stand out within the org and Microsoft as the company's premiere experience incubation team.
Cityway is a massive new development currently being constructed on the south side of downtown Indianapolis. It plans to boast world class dining, hotels, fitness centers and nightlife. Prior to opening, the developer wanted to establish a welcome center, complete with 6 touch screen units for visitors to interact with. Vision3 was chosen to deliver the final app and hardware. These are style boards for my favorite concept, however, the final product ended up being another of my designs, which can be seen in the video below.

Style frames for a short film centered around a mysterious, deserted space outpost. The original objective was to develop a project to help me learn Cinema 4D, but it turned into something much more. Short sequences of this piece can be found in my motion reel.

I go through a lot of sketchbooks. Although the majority of the pages get filled up with thumbnails and client notes, I noticed there were quite a few interesting sketches surfing around the margins. I decided to pull all of these "work" sketches, about seven years worth, into one single composition. This was the result. The final print was 24x36" and consists of apprroximatly 180 individual sketches.
In 2011, I was commissioned to create a set of graphic prints for my design studio. At the time I was very interested in awkward forms and uncomfortable compositions. These were the result.
