My experience ranges from years of creativity to software development, information technology and aerospace engineering companies that now ends with education. Over the years, with this wide range of jobs I’ve had the privilege to work at developing my own unique styles of art that combines both creativity and technology into one. I love bringing this into the classroom that can broaden anyone's career paths such as the medical fields, engineering, and of course the entertainment industry itself. I love to show students what their capabilities can make with today’s technology and creativity.
I'm a hands on learner. Show by teaching with visuals. We can all teach by book or powerpoint by my goal is to create videos or lessons where they can learn by creating. Imagination is the limit when it comes to digital media and creativity. I feel if I can show my students the tools then their imagination can take them to the stars. I want to wow my students at what they can do with a little digital painting, a little animation to 3D modeling/gaming to where they can 3D print anything. You need both tools and imagination to become successful in any industry. Why not show them what today's technology can bring them?

My goals being on TPT is to start sharing what I built to overcome the challenges of when I first started teaching. I had to take this knowledge of art and technology and make it into lesson plans that match both CTE and state standards. What I'll share are those lesson plans and more. If there is a need to teach a specific subject such as 3D modeling for 3D printing or animation I can definitely start steering in a desired direction. I love all digital media and still do my own stuff today. If you’re looking for 3D such as Autodesk Maya or digital painting with Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, Illustrator and more just ask.
