What I Do
I love to create engaging and fun content to communicate ideas to people. Whether it be video, audio, web or whatever may be the best way to get an idea across. I can leverage all of that knowledge to create or manage projects.
I believe an idea or spark of an idea can come from anywhere or anyone, and ideas can evolve with good communication.
Currently I have been focused on video, new AI technologies, and aerial video and photography. I enjoy learning new skills, enhancing my current ones, and gaining more knowledge for my work and personal projects. I always want to be moving forward and trying new things. I feel it's important to break things once in a while. If I'm not, I'm not pushing forward hard enough.
Encourage innovation. Change is our lifeblood, stagnation our death knell.

AI/New Tech Experiments, Looking to the Future
Large Language Models (LLMs), and the possibility of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) around the corner are ushering in a fresh spectrum of creative possibilities. Their ability to create and enhance digital content across various mediums, generate thought starters, copy, and code is quickly enhancing the possibilities in how we create, work, and live.
Embracing artificial intelligence has profoundly transformed our capabilities to do things we never could before, and move faster, opening the doors to unchartered realms of digital storytelling. We are at the crossroads of technology and creativity; it’s only going to get more interesting.
I've been playing with all the new technology that looks promising to me for a while now. I'm at the point where I am finding more and more practical uses for it.

Current Passion Project
I am currently working on a charity and docuseries focused on the unhoused population in Minneapolis and why inequity is significantly worse here than other cities.
Putting it All Together
Every skill in the digital realm contributes to a broader and more nuanced communication palette. My professional journey started with Adobe Flash and Adobe Director, and moved into video production, websites, enriched further by exploring motion graphics, aerial video and photography, and now, delving into the transformative potential of Artificial Intelligence. Each skill is not just a standalone capability, but a part of a collaborative narrative, intertwining to create a more effective and engaging means of communication.
I like to make things. There's a kind of magic in taking an abstract idea and molding it into a tangible creation. Be it a captivating video, a piece of code, a website, an audio creation or a photograph. The medium may vary, but the joy of putting the conceptual puzzle together remains a constant. Every project is a journey of exploration, an opportunity to learn, and a playground to experiment.
My creative journey has expanded over my entire life from playing instruments, recording, producing, cooking, and has evolved into the realms of digital media. My drive to continually evolve has led me to embrace new mediums and technologies, each adding a unique shade to my creative canvas.
