Web Video Production
|Experience||Creative Director - Evil Cyborg - 03/2013 to Present|
I co-founded and ran a scrappy start-up that created engaging educational content for the digital-native generation. As an entrepreneur, I wore every hat imaginable to produce hundreds of entertaining and accessible animated videos to demystify concepts in economics, finance, information systems, HR management, and pharmacy.
Adjunct Instructor - Art Institute of Austin - 01/2012 to 3/2014
I taught entry-level video production and digital image manipulation courses to students pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts. To make the best use of our limited time, I “flipped” the class-- putting all my lectures online for students to consume at their own pace as “homework,” and dedicating the reclaimed class-time to hands-on learning.
Digital Media Producer - McCombs School of Business - 04/2008 to 3/2013
I was a one-man video band for the UT Business School, creating video content from concept to online delivery. I started several successful series such as the scribbly animation “LINGO: The Language of Business.” I also served as the technical project manager for the development, launch, and maintenance of the school’s original online publication Texas Enterprise.
Commercial Producer - KEYE TV - 04/2006 to 04/2008
I worked directly with clients at the local Austin CBS affiliate to create commercials in our “in-house ad agency.” I wrote, directed, edited, and often shot spots for businesses as diverse as Main Street Homes, Hut’s Hamburgers, and Austin Water. I also helmed special projects for Austin-American Statesman and Dell Children’s Medical Center.
