Once In College
Did I mention that I graduated from Gonzaga High School while I was a junior at Catholic University?
During my senior year in college I was an intern in the United States House of Representatives, made Dean's List, & graduated with a BA in American History and a minor in Philosophy.
After college I became a musician & songwriter, which I pursued as a living for a long time.
Back In College
Currently I am an Adjunct Professor at George Washington University, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses such as Interactive Web Design; Frame-By-Frame Animation, and Layout & Design of the Book.
Prior to that I was visiting Assistant Professor of Digital Media, teaching courses in diverse departments & academic disciplines at the (original) Corcoran College of Art + Design. I spent 7 years at the Corcoran, teaching in the BFA Design Department, the New Media Photojournalism graduate program, and the Art History program.
Before that I was a member of the faculty at the Catholic University of America in the Department of Art and the Department of Media Studies.
These Days, 2017
I own a web development / design business - now in its 17th year - and work with clients of all types and sizes.
For 20+ years I was on the board of the Gonzaga Carmody Open. The Carmody Open is a 501(c)3 organization designed to raise scholarship funds for fatherless boys to attend Gonzaga College High School in the District. Now in its 4th decade, the annual Carmody Open Golf Tournament has raised scholarship funds in excess of $1.3 million dollars.
For twenty-five years I was also a Board Member of Choices, Inc. Choices, Inc. was a non-profit organization 501(c)3 for the development of resources for the sexuality education of persons with cognitive challenges and their parents and staff.
This is a Creative Environment.
An extension of skin, bone, circuit boards, paper & vinyl, my work studio is a co-mingling of the obsolete and the cutting edge.
Antiques, cast-aways, 33 1/3 album covers and open-source software interact with a striking visual experience which never fails to inspire hi-quality work.Would you like to know more?
