All about me. The Abridged Version:
I started working in computer graphics back when no one even knew what that was. I had the good fortune to "play" with a bunch of high-end graphics equipment as a teenager. I learned enough that I got hired, while in college, to demonstrate graphics systems at major trade shows around the country. Next, I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor's in Communications, Video Production and Graphic Design and was quickly hired as Art Director by News Channel 8, a 24 hour TV news station in Washington, D.C. After a few years in Washington, I came home to Pittsburgh and ended up at PMI, Pittsburgh's largest video production company.
I spent 13 great years at PMI where I served as the Director of Graphics and Multimedia, was a shareholder in the company and worked on a bunch of great projects for major agencies and corporations. While there I ran a Quantel Paintbox, a Discreet Logic Flame and an After Effects system.
A few years ago, a group of us at PMI came up with the bright idea for a new company. And that was the birth of MoGoes. MoGoes was developed as mobile platform for the delivery of rich-media information to people on-the-go. We spent two years developing the product and the content, during which time I served as President of the company.
Right now, I am involved in the marketing of green and energy-efficient homes here in Pittsburgh. As an agent for RE/MAX Select I have the opportunity to combine my passion for the environment with a profession that lets me market homes that make sense here in our region. You can find out more at www.greenhomespgh.com.
I still take on freelance work for select clients. Feel free to look around and get in touch with me if you think we can work together.
In case you might think I am all work and no play. I should mention that I play pretty hard too. I compete in triathalons and race my bike during the summer. I spent 20 years on Seven Springs Ski School, many of them as Staff Trainer and Technical Director. I also spent three years as a Divisional Clinic Leader for the Professional Ski Instructors of America. Last year, I decided to step back and run my own personal ski school, for my kids Jonathan and Nina.
