As a Principal Visual Designer I have over ten years of experience in design and advertising. I’ve spent the past 5 years at Solar Turbines, helping to build standardization of design across digital applications at CATERPILLAR and Solar Digital of Solar Turbines. I have a unique skill set from UI/UX design, motion design, video production / editing, with a strong background in illustration. I also have extensive experience in 3D modeling 2D/3D animation and Augmented Reality (AR).
I attended art school to pursue my BFA in Fine Arts, printmaking and illustration. I quickly over my time at university developed an interest in digital software to assist in my projects. From there I experimented with 3D and animation software. This interest got me my first internship at an ad consultant agency, which eventually turned into a full time position creating illustrations and animations in Adobe Creative Suite. During that time I also earned a Certification of Printmaking at the Fabric Workshop and Museum's Apprenticeship Program, where I learned to create repeat patterns on yardage of fabric. This material that I printed on still exists there today. Eventually I was hired to teach what I learned to students. I paired that program with another I was teaching at the Mural Arts Program where I taught grade school kids the fundamentals of design and fine arts. We used this course to created textiles and murals for the city of Philadelphia.
I have always had a passion for all things creative and have spent most of my career sharing what I have learned with others. This experience gave me the tools to lead teams, inspire my peers and collaborate with practitioners of many diverse backgrounds.
