While working , I explored a number of applications including Photoshop and the rest of the Adobe products, 3D Studio Max, and Maya. I explored web design and educated myself in the many facets of digital art and computer technology. It was a great education and when the military contract ended, I went out on my own as a web designer. Using all the artistic elements and techniques I have learned I create one-of-a-kind websites. From Dreamweaver to WordPress, Java Script, and CSS, I have learned and explored many facets of web design. I now work mainly in WordPress and my clients have benefitted from its versatility.
I began working in the digital world in 2001. I was contracted to work as a digital artist. My job as a digital artist was to create colorful imaginative animated buttons, logos, and digital art for a programmer who built in-house programs for companies like Lockheed Martin and Northrop. Soon, I branched out to 3d modelling for simulations that my programmer built.

My ingenuity was tested because I didn’t have a security clearance! As I scoured the internet for specs and models for my creations, I developed my problem solving and creative skills. Models were required to be realistic as well as true to size in terms of ratios. I was a one stop shop… building the models, skinning models, and rendering them.
