“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 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:
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I graduated from Skyline High School and 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 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 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.
Until recently, I was Manager, Creative Services at Disney Interactive, working on packaging design as well as digital and print marketing for Disney Infinity as well as Disney Mobile apps. Both the game and job have unfortunately ended and I’m currently looking for new opportunities to design and/or manage other creatives. If you are looking for more information about my professional, pixel-pushing experience, please feel free to check out my online resume and get in touch.
I currently live in Los Angeles and, in my free time, I take photos, make digital art, write stuff, visit museums, and travel whenever possible.
