Long ago, I was born on the bayou in double south Louisiana; Terrebonne General Hospital in Houma, Louisiana; the end of the world for some, but the beginning of the world for me. I grew up cooking, fishing, dancing, celebrating, playing music, and all that implies. I adore the south. I attended LSU (1988) with every intention of becoming a Designer and an Architect, but a call from high school friends at the U of A brought me to Fayetteville, AR to play in a rock band (BE). I began working as a print shop apprentice/warehouse stocker/rogue car valet/freelance designer/web developer in Fayetteville in the early 90's to support and enhance a career in music, while intermittently attending the University of Arkansas.
After I graduated with a degree in Computer Science from the University, I accepted a job as lead project producer/designer for Arkansas Center for Technology Transfer (ACTT). This led me to a position as a Creative Design Specialist at Acxiom Corporation based out of Little Rock. I built many trusted relationships with clients and colleagues during my tour at Acxiom, and at the end of my fifth year there, I was approached by Stoneward agency with the opportunity to be their Senior Technical Designer / Content Specialist. After two years at Stoneward, I went to work with local designer and animator John Jacobs at Atomic Tomato / Waymack and Crew before accepting a senior interactive design position at CJRW. In 2009 I left the agency to form an online targeted marketing company called SkyPie. For the last four years I have worked at Shurley Instructional Materials as a software designer and new product developer.
So if you can get through all of that, I design things, program things, come up with concepts, create and implement interface solutions, figure things out, and hopefully have a good time doing it, and doing it right.
Here is my work resume.
"In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away, when a body has been stripped down to its nakedness." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
BE3 is a reinterpretation of my 90s epic wall-of-sound outfit, BE, as a three-piece rockmachine. Our first official show is in the big room at Georges in October of 2016.
