Welcome to my site.

My interests lie in interactive and interface design, 3-D and 2-D illustration and animation, online course design, web usability and accessibility. My graduate program focused on the design of educational media using 3-D modeling, motion capture animation, digital video and web design. My professional work experience includes web site design, multimedia production with Flash animation, Maya, interactivity, and encoded video, medical photography, photomicroscopy and digital image manipulation.
