Production Designer

For six years MGM Resort flooded me with more work than I could handle  primarily for: Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay casino properties.  I did email blasts creatives and coding, web design, Flash animation…

One of the most enjoyable stints I ever had was a couple years at Clear Channel for radio station web site design and general music industry promotions.  A lot of station logo flash animation….  Clear Channel owned most of the radio stations in the world and us designers would compete mockups for the top market radio stations; like, I won the largest east coast station at the time “Z100”  in New York with “Elliot” in the morning… was the biggest market in the world.

A more recent stint was at Growthmed with hundreds of clients mostly in the plastic surgery industry. For 2 years as a graphic designer doing websites, Mailchimp generic eblasts, HTML/CSS custom aesthetic adjustments within a WordPress custom page builder.

I am proficient with the core Adobe CC apps including video / audio editing and HTML/CSS responsive.

Born and raise in West Los Angeles.  My family raise show dogs as a hobby which involvement lead me to a penchant for photography and visual graphics. A Santa Monica High School – Print Shop, Santa Monica City College Photography, Photojournalism, UCLA – Photojournalism and Graphics. I started work for law firms creating exhibit boards. The dot com came Photoshop did not have layers yet and all the wrld had were program manuals.  I got lucky and became head of graphics department at of Skilled at the digital age evolved.

I have been using Photoshop before it had layers and ahead of the curve versed enough to be teaching HTML to ASP programers.

I was recruited by Enigma Digital radio stations KNAC and Groove and then again recruited by Clear Channel design work for major radio station markets and leading music industry promotions. Lots of Flash work in those days.
