I spent many years as a designer before I became a software developer. I bring a great deal of design and user experience expertise to every software development project that I am a part of.

Vector Illustration Library

Vector Illustration Library

Design, Development, Management - Microsoft

Prototyped, designed, developed initial illustrations, chose production artists, and managed production of a massive vector illustration library. This library is used exclusively within Training & Certification's animated and illustrated content.

The use of this library has expanded into Microsoft's web based media and eLearning content due to its high quality and small file size.

An architect wanted an attractive rendering of a proposed house plan using only the model's blueprints.

I modeled, textured, and rendered this house on the accelerated schedule of a single day.
