“Who do you think you are?” my dad used to ask me, semi-joking, semi-serious. He knew it was a loaded question, though he didn’t really care about the answer. As long as I thought about it and had an answer, he was happy. So, without further adieu, here are two short (but hopefully sweet) answers to give you an idea of who I am.
LONG STORY, REALLY SHORT:
LA-based senior designer + creative manager, originally from Dallas. Pixel pusher by day, photographer, artist, and writer for play.
LONG STORY, KINDA SHORT:
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I graduated from Skyline High School and the University of North Texas (with a BA in Radio, Television & Film). I worked in production for several years, mostly as a costumer on commercials, series and tv movies. Lots of travel, lots of fun. Too much uncertainty, too many hiatuses.
It wasn’t until after I moved to Los Angeles that my casual interest in graphic + web design turned into a part-time hobby and eventually into a full-time career. Under the banner of sightmedia, I designed and produced web and print projects for a variety of companies big and small, local and international.
As part of larger design teams, I’ve had the pleasure of working in a variety of roles at Walt Disney Internet Group, Yahoo! Entertainment, ABC Digital Media, Apple Inc., Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Online, Disney Interactive, and NBC Entertainment Marketing & Digital.
Currently, I live in Los Angeles and recently joined Machinima as their Senior Manager, Creative Services. In my free time, I enjoy making photos, creating digital art, writing, visiting museums/galleries, and traveling whenever possible.
