3D Modeler and 2D Illustrator
I come from a background of print, web, interactive, design house and 3D. With all of these previous specializations under my belt, I can deliver output to spec for any media channel. I have a combination of creative ideas, professional insight, software proficiency and artistry that is hard to beat.
I started out developing training support materials, illustrations and websites for a corporate support company in Rochester while I was still in college.
Once I graduated, I moved on to product packaging and labels for Label World Inc. in Rochester. If you shop at Wegmans, chances are you have brought home some goods with packaging designed by me. We designed for several different flexographic presses, and we used Illustrator 95% of the time.
I moved to Wisconsin and started doing interactive design, 3D models and animation, web design and page layouts for a design house in Milwaukee in 1998. Here I really came into my own, designing exciting, cutting edge work for many big nationwide companies, include Milwaukee Electric Tool, MBW and Safeway Steel.
My next position was a web developer for Eyecom Internet in Hartland, Wisconsin. I designed all comp sites, sales materials, banner ads, Eyecom corporate sites and client websites. I also was responsible for product and on site client photography, retouching and color correction. We sold some really high-dollar sites for big clients, it was an exciting time.
I ran my own design business for many years, serving web and print design needs.
In 2002 I was asked to teach graphic design and 3D modeling and animation for the world's largest education corporation. I taught learners of all ages and backgrounds for seven years.
Since then, I have been running a one-stop graphic design shop and video game asset development. I also offer tutoring and mentoring for a broad scope of subjects, including 3D, Photoshop, programming, web design, Illustrator, Flash, drawing, photography and painting.
I have a great deal of experience working with clients, subject matter experts, engineers, sales and marketing teams, photographers, programmers and other artists. I am the best solution on odesk when the best quality and increased sales are desired. I have done some unique jobs, when you have a process that needs improvement or other artists have told you it can't be done, it might be time to send me a message and get things moving.
