I was born in Texas City, TX and spent most of my childhood playing football, swimming in lakes, absorbing television, going to movies, and playing video games. I am the son of an Art History mother and Chemical Engineer father, which accounts for my love of art and computers. After graduating high school, I attended Louisiana State University where I earned a BFA in Graphic Design and played lacrosse for the LSU team. The first few years of my professional life were spent working on large main-frame computers, mostly slugging tape, for banks in New Orleans. I went back to grad school at CalArts in the Los Angeles area, and took a job at a furniture design studio, and began learning interactive design. Back then, most companies were just learning what could be done with computers, and I became a freelance consultant to motion picture advertising agencies in Hollywood. My love for movies, television and interactive work lead me to working with great clients. I freelanced in video, motion graphics and special effects all before the internet boom happened. Once the internet began to take off, so did I. I packed up and moved north to San Francisco, and took a full-time position at a startup called "C|net" where I continued to create video for their four television shows, and was Senior Designer for Eventually, the desire to lead my own company pushed me back into the freelance world where I got to do great "flash" and video projects for tech companies like HP, Apple, Sun Microsystems. I also got work for Lucasfilm on Episode I, II and III as a style-guide artist. I continued to make great contacts in the bay area and joined a NYC based ad agency just opening their west coast office. I developed rich media advertising and microsites for their largest clients Disney and ABC. Eventually, I moved away from Northern California, and have continued to work remotely from North Carolina for clients on both coasts (and everywhere in-between).
