I have 10+ years experience in the field of New Media. My educational accomplishments include a BFA in Photo/Film/Electronic Media from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and an MFA in Computer Animation from the International Fine Arts College (now MIUAD) in Miami, Florida.
A selection of my graphic design and animation work can be viewed on YouTube, the address available in my resume. My knowledge includes Adobe products, including After Effects, and Autodesk Maya, a high end 3D program which was our main focus and concentration in graduate school.
I have been teaching animation and graphic design online since 2003. I have worked for four different universities, and have taught everything from art foundation courses, Autodesk Maya and Adobe programs. My most recent teaching assignment was developing 2 courses in Maya for Baker College Online, located in Flint, Michigan. I am also the adjunct professor instructing these courses. I also recently taught a Graduate-level course in Adobe After Effects for the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. Adobe Captivate is one program I use in development.
I have been in the industry since 2001.
