 Profile

Visual media permeates nearly every moment of our days from TV, movies, websites, marketing & advertising, and print. Having a diverse background in the visual arts including feature film production, professional photography, web design, and graphic design for print, I intend to introduce basic working knowledge of each area to Graphic Communication students to make them better prepared to tackle any visual media necessary in their future endeavors. Specialties include: web design, film production, graphic design, management, purchasing, web solutions Software Proficiencies include: Adobe suite- Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, and Illustrator, Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, LiveType, etc., Wordpress, ModX

 Research Interests

I am interested in how Search Engine Optimization plays into the future of advertising online and how companies can leverage social media and SEO to reach potential and current customers. I am also interested in current trends in Wordpress, HTML5, CSS3, responsive design and other future changes to websites on our horizon. Both video and photography have huge implications to the online landscape as we become an increasingly more visual society.
