I’ve been exploring media arts and new ways to tell stories for about 2 decades. I’ve been a filmmaker for 18 years, and have held nearly every role on set behind the camera. I have thousands of hours doing motion graphics, working with greenscreens, and making high-budget effects. I have overseen elite teams that deliver a consistent story across media types, from video to web to interactive.
I started my first business when I was 12 and haven’t stopped since. I have been an executive in 5 companies, am on the board of 2 companies, and have managed/consulted many more. I’ve come to love validating hypothesis early, and finding scalable models to bring in income. Most importantly, I have had amazing mentors invest thousands of hours in me to understand how to build, manage, and scale online/offline companies.
I’ve done design for many years… with photoshop being the longest at 15+. In this time, I’ve done many logos, flyers, and other marketing materials. I also have wireframed/designed hundreds of website pages.
I love designing interactive experiences using anything from VJing and DMX lighting to smart devices that respond to participants and the environment. I’m fascinated with how play in groups can evolve the collective intelligence.
I’ve overseen teams that are small to 50+ people. I enjoy flat management when possible.
I enjoy shaping the context for and output from groups of all sizes. I’ve done everything from organizing FlashMobs and mass collaborative projects, to facilitating dialog in small teams with trauma.
My work in various fields (media, networks, business) usually begins with system design. I’ve designed company bylaws, new economic models, written patents on systems, and am always refining cooperative systems for the greatest good.
I’ve spent many years exploring how people connect and relate. This includes various fields in psychology and sociology, including hypnosis, neurolinguistic programming, non-violent communication, nonverbal communication, and more.
I manage internet infrastructure including firewalls, switches, servers, and routers. Also, I manage networked devices (computers, printers, microcontrollers, and more) on a regular basis.
I’ve been in the startup web world for 12+ years, and have been webmaster of many projects. I have learned basic frontend development myself, and am able to speak fluently with developers working with various frameworks/languages.
I love making and have experience with various mediums and tools. My favorite is metal (welding, grinding, soldering, etc.), but I also have experience with plastics (shredding, moulding, 3d printing), wood (framing, cutting, routing, etc), textiles (screen printing, sewing) and more.
Here are some things that didnt’ fit above but are capacities that may be useful.
