TECHNOLOGY SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
My technology experience includes using and teaching all industry-leading standard software on Mac OS and Windows, such as Adobe Creative Cloud to application specific software such as CAD and high-end rendering and animation applications. I also have a great understanding of filmmaking technologies, particularly high-speed video. In addition, I have hands-on experience with additive manufacturing (3D printing). I also have a general understanding of social media and CRM applications such as Salesforce and Hubspot.
A major interest of mine is preparing students for on-campus portfolio reviews and off-campus portfolio reviews such as the AIGA Student Portfolio Review. I participate students for annual reviews and I am an active reviewer.
I am a career-long member (and past President of the local chapter) of AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts). I am also a member of TDC (Type Directors Club) in New York City. Because of my involvement/interest in additive manufacturing, I am a member of SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers).
