Autodesk Maya

I like to Teach. I've worked in visual effects industry since early 1990's. At Left coast firms such as ILM, Rhythm & Hues, DD and for several game companies. A Maya user version 1.0, I've taught visual effects at Cuyahoga Community College along with running several Animation and Visual Effects User Groups. I'm part of the Motion Capture Society and my company MadWerkz Studios is the leading Visual Effects Boutique in Ohio which regularly completes visual effects for Commercial, Corporate and Independent Film.

Graphic Design

I served as Creative Director for 2 Tech Companies, Axentis and Complient, also performed as a Graphic and Environmental Designer for Aquent (formerly MacTemps). One of my designs can be seen in the form of the 83 Foot Brushed Aluminum and Bronze PSL Monument at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Additionally I've also taught Motion, Broadcast Design and Visual Effects as an Adjunct Professor at Cuyahoga Community College level.
