I engage projects with a sound blend of exquisite design approaches that accentuates my lifelong passion for the creative industry. I seek challenges that I could learn and grow from; I thrive in a team which presents the best possible approaches for client satisfaction; I am passionate to create, learn, teach and improve.

As a university instructor I subscribe to constructivism and student-centered approaches which drive choice-driven, creative team oriented working environments. My students are enthusiastic with the simulations that I present in my classroom where they can engage in real-world experiences in developing websites and constructing digital art. I am often regarded as a 'new age' instructor because I believe in bringing in what is relevant and current in the industry into the classroom along with assessment materials which places students in situations where they need to work together to resolve creative problems.

As a graphic & web developer, I work in the field alongside teaching at night which benefits companies I work for greatly because I am exposed to new technology, creative & instructional team-oriented environments. My passion in the creative arts is continuously growing and ever-evolving to the current trends in our industry. I take on a proactive approach and create new designs & technologies.

CreatureWrestling.com (My Personal Hobie)

I am very proud of CreatureWrestling because it is quite unlike anything most web developers do nowadays. For one, the website has been in operation since 1999 and has amassed enormous amount of content from stories, graphics and youtube videos. It is my first website that has evolved for a very long time in terms of design and content. If anything, this website shows my strength as a creative writer and creative concept developer- that has used the internet for more than a static medium to sell things on and left alone. Not many can say that they have pursued in adding content for a project for over 17 straight years and applied these skills in the areas of HTML, PHP, CSS and MYSQL.

The website is a simulated wrestling game that anyone can join up for free and compete for virtual wrestling titles by role-playing and match writing. The most unique qualities of the site are also a 100% written bio editor from the ground up and a one-of-a-kind php message board that doesn't exist anywhere else! The site is also a WordPress driven eCommerce (woocommerce) site that accepts orders for products. User can log into the site from either the message board or from the homepage and stay logged in using session variables. This is my own personal project.

Perspective Through Windows

This painting depicts the idea of ascension into another plate of reality in a subjective viewpoint in a multi-perspective of the same room.

One such viewpoint places the viewer in a dream-like world where reality is twisted and deformed. The switch on the central column represents a switch which can turn on or off reality; and the effect of the switch can be seen in the center composition from the light emerging from the window. The other viewpoint is a 3rd person perspective of the afterlife. You are the departed and the on switch represents ascension into the heavens.

Toybox

Toybox is an intriguing and a disturbing voyeuristic scene with a viewer looking into a room from an outside window. At a glance, it is rather comical. The figure is peeking into a room where a toy hand is holding onto a toy block with two colors: blue and red. The room has nothing else in it. Just the toyblock. But what could the two colors represent? It is unclear what they represent at first glance- but what is obvious is the two colors are blue and warm contrasts... a contrast that I often infuse with my paintings; a contrast which I identify between good and bad thoughts.

Outside of the room is a wall which is teaming with organic qualities as if it is submerged in water... looking closer into the outside wall you can see bone structures and shell-like features. The same features on the outside wall can be seen superimposed on the figure outside.

When taking into account that the painting is a world where every facet is a part of the viewer- including the realization that the inner wall of the room merges into the viewer's cap outside- this is a self-portrait.
