“Who do you think you are?” my dad used to ask me, semi-joking, semi-serious. He knew it was a loaded question, though he didn’t really care about the answer. As long as I thought about it and had an answer, he was happy. So, without further adieu, here are two short (but hopefully sweet) answers to give you an idea of who I am.
LONG STORY, REALLY SHORT:
LA-based senior graphic designer + creative services manager, originally from Dallas. Pixel pusher by day, photographer, artist, and writer for play.
LONG STORY, KINDA SHORT:
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I graduated from Skyline High School and the University of North Texas (with a BA in Radio, Television & Film). I worked in production for several years, mostly as a costumer on commercials, series and tv movies. Lots of travel, lots of fun. Too much uncertainty, too many hiatuses.
It wasn’t until after I moved to Los Angeles that my casual interest in graphic + web design turned into a part-time hobby and eventually into a full-time career. Under the banner of sightmedia, I designed and produced web and print projects for a variety of companies big and small, local and international.
As part of larger design teams at Walt Disney Internet Group, Yahoo! Entertainment, ABC Digital Media, Apple Inc., and Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Online, I’ve designed and/or created graphics for FamilyFun.com, Wondertime.com, Family.com, Yahoo TV (as well as their Music, Movies, Kids and omg! sites), ABC.com, Oscar.com, Apple.com, Disneyland.com, and WaltDisneyWorld.com. I was Manager, Creative Services at Disney Interactive, overseeing packaging design and digital marketing for Disney Infinity as well as supporting mobile gaming app launches and sustainment campaigns.
Currently, I am a Senior Digital Designer at NBC Entertainment Marketing & Digital, creating promotional assets for NBC.com and its various platforms.
I currently live in Los Angeles and, in my free time, I take photos, make digital art, write stuff, visit museums, and travel whenever possible.
