I come from a fine art background. I received my BFA in Printmaking from the California College of Arts and Crafts and my MFA in Printmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I had intended to teach with my masters, but daunted by the prospects I returned to the San Francisco bay area just in time for the dot.com boom. My enjoyment of technical problem solving that drew me to printmaking, made for an easy transition to working on computers.
I worked for several start-ups during that period, primarily as a 3D texture painter. Those gigs eventually lead me to Tippett Studio. After riding yet another dot-com to the bottom, a colleague and friend encouraged me to go talk to the folks at Tippett Studio. I was reluctant at first, but when I went and saw what they did, I had to give it a go. I’ve been at Tippett ever since. I started as a Texture Painter in 2002 and have grown into an Art Director role. I am truly fortunate to work with such a talented and kind group of people.
