Brief Summary | I have been working in the design field since 2004. While in college I completed freelance work for area businesses and individuals. I currently work with a group of clients on design solutions.
Major: Computer Graphics
Volunteer Work I
Coral Propagation | I dedicate my free time to coral propagation and I instruct reef aquarists on several coral fragmentation methods which reduces the destruction being done to the coral reefs by acts of careless coral farming practices.
Volunteer Work II
Cancer Research | I have recently spoke with the director of a popular research foundation. I grow certain species of soft corals for donation toward cancer research. After the corals are propagated and have a growth increase they are shipped to an aquaculture foundation. They
are then transferred to cancer research facilities & universities.
Volunteer Work III

web design |
Owner of Inet Innovations, a web and graphic design company at which I developed directly after college. During that time I have established clients who I have designed and coded websites for at which I continue to work with these businesses on a regular basis. In the process I have gained experience and obtained references while expanding my professional design portfolio.
graphic design |Flash animation, flyers, logos, magazine covers, magazine page layouts, business cards, document-digital format conversion, web layouts, navigation, interactive greeting cards, and letterheads. I've worked with many businesses including Old Carriage House Bed & Breakfast, Offenberger & White, Belpre Aquarium, Fish N' Stuff, Earth Friendly Landscaping, and several others.
video & flash game design | I've coded and designed two Flash Video Games. I published, "The Escape" a multi- level PC video game that I designed from ground up within one year. The Demo version is available for download on The New York Times website plus several other download sites including Cnet.com, Zdnet.com, Brothersoft, Softpedia, TechRepublic, Gamzzang, Clubic, Atfile, Software Mall, Empas, Plenty of Software, Acasa.ro, World Wide Directory, and many more.
virtual world Published the Virtual Art Gallery that I designed utilizing a video game engine. This is a normal gallery with art on display only it is constructed inside a video game setting. This was developed in order to demonstrate that engines which are normally used for video game design can be used to build meaningful virtual worlds that are accessible to everyone. Many environments that can be used for learning and entertainment can be put inside a virtual world. Museums, public libraries, and even shopping malls. The possibilities are endless.
work ethics & experience I am very motivated in my career and I look forward to expanding my portfolio as I advance in the future with a design organization. I am goal oriented. I always meet deadlines. I multi-task on numerous projects and software programs at a given time. I pay close attention to detail and put much effort into my work. I care about the output produced.

I'm always up for new ideas if it is beneficial as I keep an open mind toward present trends.

I work with Flash animations on a regular bases which include animated banners, navigational menus, image viewers, & gadgets.
