Summary

A relatively self taught creative and business manager. I specialize in project planning and direction but hold a broad skillset in realizing my projects from start to finish. I am a multimedia production director at my core, which means I utilize visual, audio, programmatic, and written media to create a comprehensive and fully realized final project. I am currently trying to build up a cartoon series called Some People's Kids. An adult animated comedy featuring two young adults, Wolfgang and Hayes, as they live their lives and survive through all the chaos of the world. Furthermore, I expand into the characters and acquaintances around them to bring out a rich and intricate world.

Work Experience

Multimedia Production & Small Business Management

Genome Studios Inc.

Sep 2010 - Current | Edmonton, AB

I founded a studio, and am the single employee. In my time pursuing personal projects through this studio I've developed and expanded my knowledge across the board. Project Planning and Document Drafting - Capacity and Scope are the two essential aspects of building a project plan. I can now confidently say that any projects I draft out are able to be completed fully, and will be within a scope of time and resources that are realistic and conducive to what's available. Programming - I can build tools and features for web and software applications. Specializing in game-like and interactive tools, features, and mechanics. Game Design - Though not a dominant aspect of current projects, my game design experience bleeds into my web projects as well. Utilizing software to accomplish small repetitive tasks, contemplating game experience to better realize UX/UI, and implementing game-like features into interactive projects for a more rich interactive experience. Animation Direction - I am able to design and plot out the entirety of an animated video project. Through Writing, Storyboarding, Pencil Animation, Rendering, and Post. I thrive when exploring cinematography and cinematic principals in 2D animated projects. Likewise, realizing the life within an animated character is paramount to the quality of my work.
