I create 3D models that are digital, animated, interactive, easily accessible, and embedded with technology. I create virtual and augmented reality experiences using simple 3D designs. I am currently focusing on digital literacy by transforming storytelling into visual art that is then viewed through mobile devices for children and adults. I share my work electronically through the many children’s projects I create working with autistic students.  My work has been featured nationally by Autodesk, CoSpaces, and at the University of Florida Harn Museum of Art. I am the Executive Director of the non-profit New Tech Now, recipient of the Children’s Trust of Alachua Co, Clay Electric Cooperative Foundation, Alachua County Arts Council, and SunState Community Foundation grants to develop The STE²AM Engine Mobile Makerspace (Science, Technology, Engineering, Entrepreneurship, Art, Math). I am an Artist in Residence for Arts4All Florida formerly VSA. I am an alumnus of the University of Florida and work with student organizations pursuing careers in digital arts. I offer professional development in technology to STEAM teachers through the Florida Department of Education and teach after-school providers how to safely engage learners in technology.
