College Professor

2006 - Present

Various Colleges

I enjoy the idea of higher learning, working with creative like-minded adults in my industry, teaching others what I know, sharing experiences, and molding creative minds. For that, I have found myself teaching at the collegiate level in subjects such as: 2D and 3D art, game design and development, 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, user interface design, level design, mobile development, and portfolio development.

Education

Master of Fine Arts Degree

Special Effects Animation

It was time to hone my skills, and therefore, I focused on special effects animation so I could take my artwork to the next level by creating digital content that contained video editing, explosions, cloth simulations, water effects, and many more.

Bachelor's Degree

Traditional Art
Focus: 2D & 3D Animation

Undergrad is a special place, full of making friends, learning about yourself, creating your own life, and dreaming about your future. While doing all of that, I focused on getting a degree in traditional art, with a focus on both 2D and 3D animaion. I also picked up a minor in hospitality management, figuring that I could become more customer sevice oriented in my work after knowing the ins and outs of how humans act as clients.

Career Learning

Online Classrooms, Certifications, and External Resources

In our industry, learning lasts a lifetime, and new tech creates continuous learning experiences. Therefore, I learn through outlets such as online tutorials, help menus, Lynda.com, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), company provided educational sessions, trial and error, side projects, and other life experiences, in order to stay current in my talents, skillset, and industry.

Portfolio

It's hard to showcase everything you do, so if you want specifics, just ask.

I've held creative and artistic positions in traditional art, graphic design, real estate, marketing, advertising, short film, animation, game development, app development, and become a college professor of such. So, I know a lot and can do a lot, but that does not mean I'm stuck up or a know it all. I try to learn as much as I can from anyone and everyone around me, because I know that will help me improve who I am more than anything. I'm in a constant state of self discovery, self improvement, and self reflection. Therefore, the work below will change often, so feel free to ask to see more work or work of a different calibre.
