I had a great career as an illustrator but a few years ago I moved into web design -- and love it. I know how to code (CSS, xhtml, Joomla) to make your website user-friendly and interactive. My designs are beautiful, tasteful and a pleasure to navigate and explore. If you're looking for the kind of site (CMS) that makes it easy to change content yourself, look no further. A good communicator, extremely detail conscious and organized.

I am a recent college grad (Multimedia Design Major/ English Minor) looking to further my experience in writing, film/television production, and music production. My passions in life are music, film, drawing, painting, and writing. I love to create and to help others achieve their vision with my technical abilities and imagination. I have worked in television production as a PA for the past five years, gaining a vast knowledge of tools and techniques. I have operated cameras, various audio boards, edited and played out graphics (Deko, iNews, Duet, PS, AE are a few of the programs used), produced and written segments of news, and directed (technical and script). I was promoted to full time Senior Director when I was still a full time student in college, and was able to balance both until my wife and I moved to D/FW in hopes of finding new creative challenges. I am currently employed to a network news affiliate and am considered "per diem", so my schedule can be tricky but is mostly flexible. I am proficient with various design programs and techniques. Anything I don't know off-hand, with a little coaching, I can pick up almost immediately. My full resume is available upon request.

I'm an artist extraordinaire! If it's art related I can do it! I've been a practicing artist for the last 20 years, so this ain't my first rodeo. I specialize in realism but I'm welled versed in plenty of different styles and media. I create fine art but I take instructions like a designer - what the client wants the clients gets...no fine artist meltdowns here. As an interior designer and art dealer I believe in delivering what's required for the project. And on time. And on budget. I'm still fairly new to this site but I'm sure once you start using me you won't want to stop; I'm that good.

I paint in the cold...-6--10 degrees F. The watercolors freeze and provide lovely ice crystals in which I add pastel to make them sing. I have many watercolor sheets that are entirely ice crystals that I may use them in a later composition. I have a BA in fine arts. I can do any art in...acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, clay, soapstone and printmaking.
