For the past 5 years I’ve been working in Denver, CO as a Lead Interface Artist for LEGO and a freelance visual designer. I am well versed in creating video game interfaces, websites, magazine advertisements, mobile applications and visual effects. My experience with interface design coupled with the degree I received in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics fuels a “multifaceted” philosophy by which I approach design.
Because I have worked with a variety of media platforms, I have developed a unique understanding of the execution differences between high quality print design and size-conscious video game, mobile and web asset creation.
