Most recent work :: Project Descriptions

Every year in the fall, I try to take a group of students to visit multimedia firms in New York City. This trip allows people to better understand what it means to work in this industry, see current trends, and make connections with professionals and alumni.
This year we toured some of the largest and most awarded firms in the world. We stopped by Fantasy Interactive, Madison Square Gardens [motion graphics division], The New York Times [interactive division], as well as some other boutique firms.

David Hostetler calls me to work with him in the creation of his art work from time to time. Recently he and Kate (a friend and model) and I got together to create some prints.

Last spring I was asked by the director of The School of Visual Communication to develop and teach a new motion graphics class.
I spent a great deal of time learning as much as I could about Adobe After Effects, Cinema 4D and animation principles. I called on alumni such as Eric Mayville, Caroline Caine, Mugur Marculescu and Chris McKenize for guidance on possible project ideas. They helped me to better understand current best practices in this industry. These alumni provided ideas for class assignments that would be most effective in a portfolio as people enter the job market.

Documentary Story Telling in Europe -- Fredrick Lewis, Brandon Flayler and I spent 6 weeks of the summer working with 16 Ohio Universtiy students in Leipzig, Germany. While we were in Germany we worked in groups on short documentary films.
