I have gained incredible industry level experience as a creative manager, at Legend 3D. While at this leading stereoscopic 3D conversion studio I climbed the ranks from Depth Artist to Depth Lead and on to Depth Supervisor. In charge of upwards to 60 artists at a time, I led the creative look for multiple feature films, commercials, broadcast, and trailers. I collaborated directly with VFX Supervisors, Compositing Supervisors, Production, and other Managers to achieve the creative vision that the client requested.
I have developed a pinpoint industry quality eye, a wickedly adaptable work style to fit various client and VFX Supervisor creative requests, and found an industry that I absolutely enjoy. An insanely strong work ethic, the ability to hit unreal deadlines, and a collaborative nature, I would be an easy fit to any VFX team.
I continue to sharpen my artistic skills with freelance jobs in many aspects of Digital Media. I have worked with New Blue Inc. to create templates for their post production video editing solutions. I also have worked with Red Phoenix Kung Fu Martial Arts School to create a full working website, motion graphics, video editing, print, and look development.
As a Digital Print Specialist I work in a highly fast paced environment preparing and printing files using RICOH and XEROX digital presses.

Along with the management of all paper stock, I correct and fix any mechanical troubleshooting the presses may need and make sure all prints including color and quality match clients expectations. As a Digital Print Specialist I continue to hone my skills in color , digital assets, prioritization, and time management without loss of quality maintaining critical turnarounds.
