I'm a Solutions Architect and Digital Strategist at The Coca-Cola Company. My passion is Interaction Design; it was the focus of my graduate thesis and ID principles inform all of the work I do as a technologist.
Before discovering ID and becoming a programmer, I produced music and worked in audio post-production for Century III, a subsidiary of Universal Studios. At C3, I worked on Florida City, a low-budget feature-length film and Memphis: Rock n' Soul with Cybill Shepherd, a radio series produced for NPR.
My fledgling career as a music producer was cut short by an unfortunate series of events that include Apple Computer's acquisition of Emagic in 2002 and a crashed hard-drive (it's a long story).
