As a college level instructor I have taught Photoshop techniques to students in classes for photography, and computer animation texture mapping for video games and film. As an artist I have used Photoshop since it was first introduced for television, games, and feature film work. I also use it for my own personal photography for gallery displayed shows.
I just completed a feature film in 2015 as 2nd Unit Director, and 1st Assistant Director. I have had 20 years of production experience for television commercials, including Superbowl spots. I am currently working as a Cinematographer and Director for television commercials.
My background is in special effects and animation starting with Pacific Data Images (merged with Dreamworks at the time of Shrek). And I have created effects and animations for numerous Superbowl commercials and a few games-- Maya being just one of several 3D Animation packages that I have used extensively.
