Consisting of artistic and commercial work, the given sections are meant to represent the spectrum of media I have worked with. All the work represented here, considers the communication between human and object, as viewer or user. This includes installation, sound, images, and web design and applications. The sonic and visual elements are composed in a traditional sense, although in most cases behavioral programming is applied which either, allows for user interaction, and/or provides an effect for the given medium.

Websites and Multimedia Production

Website and media production represent a substantial portion of my work rendered. Generally, there is a high turnover in website production with fairly periodic upgrades and rebranding tactics. My role spans from complete authorship (from concept to implementation) graphic creation and CMS implementation. My media production work has encompassed live processes for video and audio and rendered compositions, ranging from various video formats to print and digital fabrication processes.
