 About Me

I have been a web developer, software engineer, graphic artist, animator, and illustrator since 1995. I pride myself in keeping current with development trends and technologies, and embrace learning new tools. I am a perfectionist and passionate about my projects and won't rest until the desired outcome is achieved. I love being part of a team, but also work well independently. And I have a great sense of humor!

  Portfolio Galleries

About these Galleries

Click each thumbnail to view a series of images for each section. There is a description at the bottom of each large image in the lightbox.

User Interface / User Experience

The Altus vSearch Cloud Application is a Java appication. I was a Sr. Software Engineer doing the front-end on a 4-person development team that built this app. The corporate demo was used as a baseline for all client domains. Clients included Texas Instruments, General Motors, AC Delco, Cisco, NetApp and others. Also included are images of the mobile app that I created the skin for.

I worked for Cisco Systems for 11 years. These samples inlude some working examples of jQuery and EXT-JS interactions. There are also some screenshots of pages I built within the Cisco intranet.

Lastly, there is a small demo site I created to illustrate responsive web design. It has a touch of humor and personality. And, of course, this portfolio site itself is also responsive.

Motion Graphics

There are 4 samples in this gallery. While at Cisco, I was not only as a web developer on their intranet, but also as a multimedia developer for the Learning & Development Solutions Group. In that role I created Flash e-learning animations and some motion graphics with After Effects and LightWave 3D.

3D Models

I used LightWave 3D to create visual assets for the e-learning modules at Cisco. The models shown in this gallery were created by me and were animatable and could be used for visual appeal and to demonstrate the components of the Cisco hardware. The images in this gallery are not animated but I included them just to show the models themselves. In the Motion Graphics section you can see an example of their use in the Flash E-Learning piece.

In the case of the interior room models, we purchased these models for the sake of expediency, however I was responsible for setting them up in LightWave 3D and configuring the lighting, camera work and rendering. They were used as backdrops for green-screened live actors in sales simulation e-learning modules.
