Born in Springfield Missouri, I've lived here most of my life. My wife Lisha and I have 2 children, Abe and Isaac. I spend whatever time is available playing with them or making stuff. I have to be creating things one way or another. I'll go crazy if I don't.
I'm currently a Network admin and also a freelance writer for Hack A Day
I've been doing multimedia design in one capacity or another since about 1997.
Jobs that I have enjoyed, with the most recent at the bottom:
Instructor at Ozark Technical Community College:
Taught Introduction to 3d animation on 3ds max 5 (maybe it was 4).
Taught Introduction to multimedia design using Macromedia Director.
Instructor / Project manager at Archimedes Producoes Estereographicas:
I trained an 18 member team in 3d production using 3ds max and stereographic projectors.
Then, I led the team in their first few projects including guided tours of resorts before they were built, and a choreographed dance presentation where dancers interacted with characters on a giant projection screen.
