This portfolio offers selected samples of web design, User Interface design, technical and conceptual illustration, interactive product demos, photography, instructional and marketing pieces, each representing just a fraction of a 20+ year career in graphic and fine arts.
It also features "new media" elements such as 3D rendering, QuickTime VR, animated GIF, Director, sound effects and other items used as features or navigation elements.
Note: Within each section, some samples will open to a new browser window or tab. When you are done with viewing that section, simply close that window.
