Advances in technology have allowed our society to experience a shift. Increasingly personalized and customizable forms of digital media let users engage in new forms of interactive visual communication. My passion as a designer is to solve problems that deal with the concept, design and development of user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) modalities. Thus, my artwork revolves around user collaboration and contribution to create new and expressive art forms that connect users and viewers by a network. My other passion is helping clients, students, designers, and entrepreneurs reach their goals. I have been a practicing visual designer for over 17 years at creative agencies in the Los Angeles area and an educator for over 12 years in the Art Department at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). As Assistant Professor of art and design, I also serve as director of the Center for Visual Communication (VISCOM), an on-campus, student-driven creative strategy agency.
