I get to marry two of my passions through this company - science and art. I come from a family steeped in the life sciences, but opted to follow the art path, with a twist. The road to the present has been circuitous. Eighteen years ago, I decided to start Arkitek Studios, a visual communications design group specializing in content development for the science, technology and education communities. Before Arkitek I spent 3 years at Large Scale Biology Corporation helping to design and construct biotech instrumentation (Iso-DaltTM 2-D electrophoresis platform used in the separation and identification of proteins, as well as PCOS, a high volume centrifuge-based production oligonucleotide synthesizer system). During that time, I helped design instrumentation, managed production budgets, supplied machinists with AutoCAD drawings, assembled finished parts, wired electrical systems, and tested and shipped the assembled machines. I trained classically in piano and ballet, then left for Stuttgart at 16 on a dance scholarship, danced professionally in NYC, Denver and Mexico City for the next 8 years, and afterwards spent (or misspent, depending on how you look at it) 12 years as a working musician in a number of bands in LA, the Pacific Northwest and Thailand. I'm getting to the point in my life where I'm realizing that no matter how bizarre, nothing I've learned has been completely useless. Bits and pieces of everything I've been exposed to show up, or influence what I do now. Proving, at least to me, that a patchwork of experiences in life can add up to something interesting. Specialties: I'm a bridge between disparate groups. Translation of complex science and technological information to a wide variety of audiences. The usual 2D and 3D software for this industry (Max, ZBrush, Unity, UnReal, Photoshop, Premiere, AfterEffects, etc). Music composition, recording, producing. Pretty fair hand with a hydrogen-oxygen torch... Budding sportbike afficionado.
