EXPERIENCE DIRECTOR

About

I am a Creative Director working at the intersection of Art and Technology.

 

Looking to better this world with more beautiful things. Growing up sketching and drawing for the pure fun of it, I went to art school to find my passion and to make a living from it. I ended up experimenting with many things, sculpture, installation, technology, and art, graduating with a BFA degree in New Media from the Kansas City Art Institute.

Now with over 15 years experience as a professional, I am a well rounded professional with a unique set of cross-disciplinary skills. My speciality is to integrate teams and find innovative and engaging solutions for brands, installations, and experiences.

Some of my favorite projects have been creating lobby art installations, museum exhibits, experience interactives, title sequences for TV & film festivals, and show visuals for world class musicians.
