Professionalism is not just an industry term, it is an attitude!
“Do NOTHING and the results are predictable…Do SOMETHING and the possibilities are endless!” —Michael Speigner
I have been working in the Video, Graphics and Multimedia industry for over 22 years. I understand how to help a company present their products and services by showcasing them with one of the media formats below.
My Main Focuses:
* Graphic Design for Print, Web, TV and Media
* Mobile Design & Development
* Digital Special Effects (F/X)
* Website Design * Video Production
I served my country in both the U.S.A.F. as a Law Enforcement Specialist and U.S.C.G. as a Machinery Technician, earning the U.S.A.F. Commendation Medal in 1989, and Sailor of the Quarter in the U.S.C.G. in 1992. During my service with the Coast Guard, I was commissioned by my Captain to develop and produce training videos for the command as well as become the ship’s Training Officer.
When my term with the Coast Guard ended in 1993, I decided to start my own Video Production Studio in Columbus, Ohio and won national awards for animation and corporate video production. It wasn’t long after that I began my longtime standing relationship with Popular Science Magazine as a technical Illustrator.
I have worked as a Lightwave 3D Specialist doing projects and graphics with clients such as Pacific Data Imaging, Electronic Arts, CNN, FOX and many other motion picture effects houses across the world. my expert knowledge in both Video Production and Lightwave 3D led me to earning my NewTek Certified Lightwave 3D Instructor’s Certificate as well as accreditation to teach Video Production and Graphics at Florida Metropolitan (now Everest) University without having a degree myself.
I am an avid aviator (FAA Commercial Multi-Engine Instrument Pilot) and have worked with Sporty’s Aviation Training Academy, Boeing Aircraft, Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, Flight International, and NASA. I am also experienced in Flight Simulation, and worked with Microsoft for their Flight Simulator 2000. I also enjoy producing Independent films in my spare time.
