It's been a long road with a philosophy of a Renaissance artist in the modern age of digital and technological change across all art forms and media.
Acting and art were begun in high school and early work was found as artist/designer for shoppers, newspapers and magazines. That work led into the darkroom and then photography and more art design for museums, stage, and television and lead to involvement for video in computer graphics, 3D modeling and animation. While doing that for a living, I returned to school and earned degrees in Management and Photojournalism (MA UT Austin). Post grad work was done in Advertising and Marketing (ABD - PhD UT). Teaching at the university level I continued exploration and business enterprise in videography, cinematography, DP work, and production design and today I use all those bodies of experience as a producer and director for development of entertainment content, increasingly my own.
