“Who do you think you are?” my dad used to ask me, half-jokingly, half-seriously. 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 about who I am:
Long story, really short: LA-based graphic + production designer, originally from Dallas. Pixel pusher by day, photographer, artist and writer for play.
Long story, kinda short: I was born in Dallas, Texas, the only child of loving parents. After graduating from Skyline High School and the University of North Texas (with a Bachelor of Arts 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 at Walt Disney Internet Group, Yahoo! Entertainment, ABC Digital Media, Apple Inc., and Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Online, I’ve designed and/or created graphics for FamilyFun.com (now Spoonful.com), Family.com, Yahoo TV (as well as their Music, Movies, Kids and omg! sites), Oscar.com, ABC.com, Apple.com, Disneyland.com and WaltDisneyWorld.com.
I currently live in Los Angeles and work at Disney Interactive in Glendale, California. In my free time, I take photos, make digital art, write stuff, visit museums, and travel whenever possible.
