I'm a designer and technologist on a lifelong mission to show people how to get creative with technology.
I've worked with a lot of heavy hitters in the world of technology like Dropbox, Adobe, and GitHub.
I was also the first designer at Codecademy, the largest coding education platform in the world.
My stuff has showed up all over the place: The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, TIME, and a whole bunch more!
Over the last few years, 3D has kind of become my THING.
My passion, even? I know people use that word a lot, but...
I'm talking deep-down, gut-level, creative passion that flips you from the inside out. Gets you walking around with butterflies. That kind!
And for a lot of reasons:
Creative doors are busted WIDE open when you learn 3D.
Even when I was just a few weeks into it, I directed and animated a music video...
Since then, 3D has given me endless opportunities to experiment because it's the foundation of so many emerging disciplines.
Here's some of the stuff I get to play with:
I have WAY more options for tackling design problems, from high-fidelity 3D prototypes to rough, animated concepts.
I feel like the size of my toolkit has tripled.
Even when I'm doing 2D work—mocking up a website, designing a graphic, coding an interface—I'm thinking about dimensionality in a whole new way.
Y'all ever have a day where your sketches just ain't cutting it? You can mock up virtually anything in 3D. Throw that pencil in a woodchipper and get down with some visualizations!
My work has been more prolific and enthusiastic in the last few years than... ever?! Definitely more than when I was at Dropbox or any cushy full-time job.
Learning 3D is basically a portal to INFINITE CREATIVE POSSIBILITY right now.
This is not a drill, okay? We got one of those Wild West situations on our hands. If you love to learn, create, and challenge yourself, best saddle up.
I'm excited about my work ALL THE TIME. I think my blood is actually just electricity now.
There are so many possibilities in the third dimension. Ahhh! I can't wait to show you.
