Digital Media Artist


Hello! I’m a digital and mixed media and artist, professor of design and illustration, biomedical illustrator and animator, coffee enthusiast, fly fisherman, hiker, biker, and a bunch of other things.

I’ve gone through some different phases to try and figure out just what kind of classes I want to make for y’all. I focused on biomedical animation (3D Motion BioLab), beginner classes in Cinema 4D (ABC4D) and now I’m creating more general motion design and art-related classes. This may seem a little fractured to some, but I’ve decided it fits me perfectly. I’m always trying something new, growing tired of it after a bit, and learning new techniques to get me energized again.

I am a Gemini after all. 


Absolute Beginner Cinema 4D (ABC4D) classes are all about offering short, modular components designed to teach you a useful feature in Cinema 4D as quickly as possible. Learn the skill, then implement it in a short project. Over time, you will gain so much knowledge about this software, you will look back and be amazed at how much you have learned.

3D Motion BioLab - I've been creating biomedical animations with Cinema 4D for more than 18 years. Along the way, I've learned a lot and I've developed a few tips and techniques that might be helpful for you. If you are interested in creating biomedical animations or illustrations with Cinema 4D, then these classes are for you!

Digital Art & Motion Design

As an Associate Professor in the Visual Arts at CU Denver, I teach a variety of classes in a variety of topics from Illustration to 3D motion design. The classes available here are inspired by my own creative art practice as well as some of the demonstrations I have done over the years in my classes. A bunch are inspired by title sequences like True Detective or Daredevil. I love title design!
