labels

Posted by on Jul 15, 2015 in Thoughts and Ideas, User experience | No Comments

I’m not into labels. People are people. I’m a people too. People do things and I like to make it easier for them to do the things they do. I like to solve problems. You can call me a problem solver. Some people call me a UX designer. Some interaction designer, web designer, project manager, […]

Losing to gain

Posted by on Jun 21, 2015 in Thoughts and Ideas | No Comments

Sometimes you need to make space for something new. My original intention during highschool was to be a fashion designer. I backed out before classes started only losing my deposit on residence. My next move was to take a fast pace 2 year computer programming course because that was the way of the future. I dropped […]

I dropped by Dressew this morning to pick up some needles and bobbins and emerged a couple of hours later with three new projects in my bag. The first one is this cute double zipped pouch that I plan on using as a (temporary?) replacement for the heavy wallet I’ve been lugging around. I removed […]

Work/work balance

I ran across this interesting blog post a while back. It’s short, sweet, and exactly to my point. It’s written much more concisely than I could have written it, so go ahead and take a look yourself.

High Dive hits one million

A couple of months ago I worked with Frosty Pops Corp to create a game trailer for their game Ten Large. I had a great time getting the ol’ motion muscles limber and offered my services for future games. Fast forward to the present and I’ve created a second trailer for their biggest hit yet, […]

I went home for a visit over Mother’s Day weekend and was helping my mom with a few home reno’s while I was there. I was up a ladder switching out a light fixture when I saw this little guy and climbed back down for my camera. I’m sure she thinks I’m pretty nuts, but […]

Connection

I’m always trying to define what this word means to my friends. Outside of dancing, I really like the way Brené puts it. “I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength […]

Taking the time to do it right

Posted by on May 1, 2015 in Thoughts and Ideas | No Comments

I fully realize i don’t have all of the time in the world to do everything and anything my heart desires. I try not to spend too much time worrying about where I’ve been or where I’m going. Instead, I try to use that time to create more value and increase the quality of the […]

Real-world skills from a game

Posted by on Mar 22, 2015 in Thoughts and Ideas | No Comments

I’ll be the first to admit I belong to the generation that wants it all and wants it right now. Ok, I’m willing to work hard for a little while, but I like to see results as I go. I don’t want to spend 5 years of my life making something that barely makes a […]

I recently had the opportunity to work with a local indie game developer, Frosty Pop Corps. Some of that know me might think I’d be working as a project manager, game designer or designing the UI. In actuality, I was flexing my visual design skills in a short game trailer promoting their most recent release, […]
