My career in visualization began at the Vancouver Film School in Vancouver, Canada, where I trained in 3D modeling and animation, specializing in character animation.
I am currently employed full time by the University of Michigan. Having worked in 3D modeling, animation and visualization for 4 years in the UM3D Lab, I moved to Instructional Support Services in 2008, where I currently:
> help faculty integrate technology into courses, and support grant applications;
> create 2D and 3D graphical content for tutorials, support, and in-class use;
> create interactive applications using Flash and ActionScript 3.0;
> train students and faculty in a variety of programs, including: our open source online research, project and course management software, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash;
> consult with faculty on the best application of social networking software such as FaceBook;
> advise on prudent copyright practices and the possibilities and pitfalls of Open Education;
> evaluate the effectiveness of different technologies on classroom learning and pedagogy.
