Creative and original? Maybe. Let me take your idea and create something amazing with it. My proudest works come from the ideas I catalyze for others. Let me try yours.

Work History

2013current

Publications Editor II

Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development

I must have left an impression because they snatched me up immediately following college graduation. Aside from the many side projects from across the department, I create web graphics, run the internal TV announcements, introduce new (and free) technologies to the communications team to streamline project management, and enjoy free rides to-and-from home on the MTA bus...that’s the real perk to state government.

  • Designed two of the web page templates that were used across the new Tennessee government website.
  • Played a major role in revising and reorganization the website tn.gov/workforce.
  • Designed billboards that were displayed in ten major cities across Tennessee

I specialized in recording weddings, graduations, and business solution videos for training or what-have-you. (previously Kyle's Kreations, then Video ADventures, and currently Bear Wallow Film Company)
