Digital + Traditional Art/Design Courses

I've been teaching art, art history, design, computer illustration, interactive design, digital video, digital animation, motion graphics, and web technologies for more than a decade.

Professionally, I provide creative treatment, visual solutions and technical implementation to various projects. My background is in illustration, visual design, interactive design, front end development and full-stack engineering. I have an in-depth understanding on design solutions within complex technological frameworks and enterprise systems. I work with many teams on ever-changing high-volume content with tight critical deadlines integrating and troubleshooting multiple technologies.

I think, draw, design, code and problem-solve visual and technical issues within various complex legacy and open-source frameworks for apps, web, mobile, pos, and internal use. I've worked with huge brands on complex design technology solutions and for small non-profits to implement a more human-centered approach to delivering and implementing content.
