I create cinematic user experiences. I help leaders and teams envision the future of their products and services.
I’m part of the Adobe Design team and the Adobe Pro Video Team. For 12 years my primary focus has been on motion design tools (primarily After Effects) and related pro video tools and services.
Prior to Adobe I returned to school for a Master’s Degree in Human Computer Interaction Design at Indiana University. There I researched “Cinematic Interaction” which combines the language of film, the logic of software, and the value of human-centered design. I use that research everyday. I also developed and taught undergraduate classes at IU.
Earlier in my career I enjoyed founding and successfully running my own creative agency, Creative Fuse, and working for pioneering companies such as Electronic Arts, and Strata 3D.
On a personal note, I was born on a tropical island, then raised by cowboys in the red rocks of Southern Utah. I now live in the lush green of Seattle, WA.
