Although it seems that in the shower or sleeping is where my best work occurs, the studio is the place where the shoe leather hits the pavement. I mostly work with web and application development, but I also do a good deal of graphic, print, and multimedia design. On my off hours, I like to turn off the computers to paint with camel hair, canvas, and minerals.

They don't call it the information age for nothing. The web browser has become the default medium for communication and the craft involves a broad spectrum of knowledge that give a developer complete control over how a web application performs, looks, and operates.

User experience design, interaction design, and behavior design are just a couple of the terms floating around these days for those who work with user interaction, code, and design. I've often found myself refering to cognitive psychology, 'The magical number seven', when trying to convice others to simplify user navigation options and settings.

Don't mistake legibility with communication - David Carson. Visual design in communication is powerful and it can make or break a product, company, presentation, or annual report. Even though I'm using software, I still believe the most powerful tool, besides our imagination is still the pencil & paper.

The average human attention span is a bit shorter than that of a goldfish. People often forget that the web is a multimedia medium. I'm a decent with enough production, lighting, equipment, and I have an eye for detail to make your multimedia look and sound like it was actually done by a professional.

Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television - Woody Allen. I like to paint portraits, landscapes and abstractions in oil, watercolor and gauche. I wish I was able to paint more often and I keep joking with my better half that it's my retirement plan. Compared to my digital work, it's nice knowing that a painting will last several hundred years.
