As a newly-minted family man, my primary goal is to provide for my wife and children. As an artist, my primary goal is to continue to do so in an artistic manner. I have kept a rather eclectic professional career in the arts throughout my relatively young adult life, working in freelancing, studio work, education, and business. I have been a director, a writer, an animator, a video editor, a motion graphics specialist, an illustrator, a 3d modeler, a teacher, and always a student.

I enjoy working in education, as it allows me to foster the creativity of others while allowing myself to continue to grow artistically. In recent years, my experience within the education sector has grown quite a bit. What started as an adjunct position meant to supplement the bills, has since grown to a full time art teaching position at the collegiate level, a subject matter expert (SME) in digital design and animation, a course curriculum design committee member, and an author of several collegiate classes.

My career has been multifaceted, but I have found stability and happiness being immersed in education. While I don't see myself ever fully leaving the teaching environment, planting the seeds to further grow my studio businesses as well as pondering the allure of an outside creative studio position has brought with it a new-found sense of excitement to my professional career outlook.

My options are open, my mind is fertile and blooming with creativity, and my ears are listening.
