                               Most recently I launched Base / Apex, a small firm specializing
                               in interaction design. Prior to that, I freelanced for MSN as a graphic
                               designer and Flash developer. In 2006 I worked full-time as a designer
                               at Big Spaceship in New York. And along the way I’ve done
                               freelance for companies such as American Express, Sony,
                               Target, Paramount, and Sierra.

                               Secondary capabilities include photography, clothing design,
                               illustration, UI and functionality, post production,
                               and creative development.

                               Education includes a BFA in Graphic Design from VCU in Richmond, VA.
                               Philosophy, Psychology, and Economics were also of interest.
