Who am I?
If you want to know me career-wise...
- Currently, I'm a Co-Founder and Chief Creative Director of a VR startup designing and visualizing the coolest emerging tech ever.
- I was a UX/Visual Designer at Amazon working on the new Home experience for their most recent Kindle Fire line of tablets. I was also in charge of designing and shipping Amazon Maps for the Fire line of products and also art directed the Dynamic Lockscreen experience for the Fire Phone.
- I was formerly a Co-Founder and Chief Creative Director of UpNext. UpNext was an Angel funded mobile app company with the goal of creating delightful, next-generation 3D Maps. UpNext and my team was acquired by Amazon to become Amazon Maps in 2012. :)
- I worked as an Environment Artist on over 10 shipped videogame titles including Tron, Medal of Honor, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Transformers.
There's more, but let's go into more personal stuff....
I have a passion for anything design or art related... latest tech devices, video games, toys, and cars. I love to paint daily, and play with my baby girl as I watch her grow. Originally from sunny Southern California, I am now in misty Seattle with my beautiful wife and happy daughter.
