CREATIVE DIRECTOR, INTERACTIVE STRATEGY

I like to make stuff.

Electronic music, 3d models & prints, and I like to draw.


3d Modeling with Z-brush and Rhino3d

I got myself a Makerbot for the holidays. I've been fairly pragmatic in my printing: repairing the handles of kitchen shears, quad-corners for an organizer, a spout for dispensing ventless fireplace fuel, and an attachment for my dryer, because dogs. Yawn. 

But then I started sculpting in Z-brush and became obsessed. The program is relatively easy to learn, compared to other 3d programs. After a bit of tinkering, I had to know how my models would print. And if I liked the results, then I'd get a print in a better material from Shapeways. The ring below has been my most successful print from Shapeways. The horse isn't nearly ready for all that yet.

With an iPad & a stylus

I learned to draw by moving my tablet around as I sketched, so using a wacom for drawing has been an exercise in disappointment.  But there's an app for that! I really enjoy sketching and drawing on the iPad, it allows a more natural process for me. So, downloading and testing different apps was a lot of fun.

This is Pepper Napping, made using Paper by Fifty-Three. I like drawing with Paper, but the gestures used to navigate and edit were hard to learn and remember.

The portrait on the left was from a short experiment of drawing random people on the subway (made with Paper). I realized this made me too self-conscious and had to go back to my daily habit of reading with my headphones on. The portrait on the right is a quick character sketch for my favorite short fiction by Catherynne M. Valente's Silently and Very Fast. This sketch was done in Procreate, my favorite drawing app. It features layers, and a very intuitive interface, importing photos and an easy way to share images.


Electronic Music & Beats

Made with Garage Band, Propellerhead's Figure & Reason

I was helping a friend with her kickstarter campaign at the beginning of 2014, we found that the most challenging part of creating the content was finding good, cheap music. After that I put together 3 tracks that I thought would help out the next person looking for good, free music.
