Overview

I've been specializing in building educational websites and games for the last 14+ years. My main clients are PBS, Scholastic, Thirteen (NYCís PBS affiliate), and Independent Lens. Iím used to taking sites and games from concept to creation.

I have a BFA in illustration, do storyboarding, Flash animation, basic AS3 programming (for jobs beyond my AS3 skillset I have a team of hardcore coders to call on), sound design, video work, and am currently learning the process of converting Flash pieces to AIR and creating apps for iOS and Android.
