Bio

I value constructive criticism and the growth that is compounded from it. I love putting together visual components just as Sherlock Holmes puts together a case. Piecing together different realms is immensely satisfying when the final centerpiece, influence, or detail is integrated. Leaving the mentor, disciple, colleague, friend, or fan speechless is a hobby for me. I breathe to take the breath of the consumer away. This thinking comes from my deep appreciation for authentic creativity, dedication to the craft, and understanding the layers of artistry. I am moved by the grit of the guitar, the passion under the pen, aestheticism of the art, and the memory of the moment. I am a believer of trusting your society. Embracing it, not rejecting it. Everyone has the ability to contribute to our cultures and with each contribution global compassion is little closer to achievement. A cycle of individual and collective growth, is the only thing I want to sell.

My Courses

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

This site is designed to help you find fieldwork/study situations of approximately eight hours per week at an internship site approved by the Department Internship instructor such as an advertising agency, graphic design firm, corporate design office, publications art department, photography or illustration studio, TV or multimedia production company. Students will be required to keep a learning journal of their internship in the form of a blog using Openlab. A portion of the class will be devoted to presenting and sharing experiences with classmates. Students will learn how to assess their talents, update their resume, and promote themselves and their work through social networks. Students will be required to setup and maintain at least two social media networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The instructors for this class are there as mentors if you have not yet found an internship before registering for the course. However, the instructors do not find an internship placement for you. It is your responsibility to find a position that fits your personal career path and help you transition to full time employment upon leaving the halls of CityTech. Ideally, you will use this site to find an internship the semester before taking the COMD 4900 class.

Type and Media

COMD 1100, fall2019

COMD 1100, fall2019

This basic design and color theory course explores graphic communication through the understanding of the elements and principles of design, as well as the design process, including idea development through final execution. This is a course in visual literacy and the design process: How we see, how we analyze the effects of our vision, and how we craft a design that will have energy and content. All projects will include thumbnail sketches, discussion and research. A weekly scrapbook will be kept. Media used are paint, paper, ink, pencil, ruler, knife, glue, and digital software for expressing graphic ideas. Numerous critiques will take place throughout the course and students’ active engagement in group discussion will play a vital role in establishing an atmosphere of collaboration and shared learning.
