People have the ability to create entire worlds and ideas from their imagination, from the minutest detail to infinite expanses. My aim as a multimedia designer is to be able to share and convey these ideas to others.

The Fallen Heroes Memorial Gallery

A 3D digital memorial to fallen troops

My project is the conceptualization of a 3D digital memorial. It is comprised of marble busts of fallen American troops as well as a memorial wall inscribed with the names of all those lost in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It includes search and browse functions so users can view a specific memorial or look through all of them, and each bust is accompanied by a personal tribute.

A lot of my work explores the relationship between emotion and thought. The very emotion that I try to generate through my work is often what influences its creation. I am captivated by the possibilities that 3D presents and aim to stimulate the same feelings in others.

As an artist I am excited that my ads are connecting with people in the community, and in other communities within the state.


Being a basset isn’t easy…

“Augie!” is a series of animated shorts based around the mishaps of a teenage girl and her dog, who really isn’t much of a dog, but more like a stereotypical, obnoxious little brother. These shorts are supposed to be very fleeting like memories or small windows into the lives of the characters. Even though they are short they are self-contained stories.

My motivation within my work has developed though my keen attention to detail. My biggest inspiration and influence on my work has been family and their support.

Design is more about telling stories then it is about designing. My stories and my personal experiences are what impacts the people who see my designs. From photography to animating shorts carrying my emotions into a project is how the world is going to find out who I am.

As a designer in the 21st century, I am drawn to the effects of mass media on social psychology. I design for purpose and emotion, using video, photography and graphic animation. Through these mediums I will move mountains in social ethics and advertising. Working for a good cause gives my life more purpose and I don’t intend to stray far from that.
