I have always been attracted to projects that blend both art and the technical. My career encompasses skills from painting to programming.
Over the last 7 years I have been developing and designing iOS apps. Currently serving as lead iOS developer with my second startup, Cognoa. They seek to help parents identify children with developmental delays very early in life when interventions can have a life changing impact.
Previously, I contributed to many projects for the Feature Animation Studios, Pixar & Dreamworks. While I specialized in lighting, my role as a generalist Technical Director also included compositing, shader writing, rigging, texture painting and effects animation. I have led many teams as a technical supervisor and also served as Lighting Director.
Periodically I join GeekSpeak as a co-host where we talk about tech and social topics from a point of view that we like to call on the fringe of Sillicon Valley.
