After high school I moved to Portland and attended Portland Community College (PCC) and the Art Institute of Portland. After two years of running up my college debts I moved back to my hometown. There I worked for my father's construction company and slowly paid off my debts. A few years later I eventually moved back to Portland and returned to PCC where I received my certificate in Multimedia. In 2008 I joined a distance learning company as part of the Art and Animation team. I currently develop interactive media for K-12 academic students to measure achievement and growth. Most of my projects were created using Flash, but I am constantly learning new technologies, such as HTML5.
