SPEEDSKATING on QUADS
In Littleton Colorado in the early 80's I was an avid speed skater racing on a team throughout the Midwest region. I love to skate and when the Rollerblade was introduced it decimated the "Quad" skate market, and innovation etc. shrunk. Currently there is a resurge in Quad Speed , so I experimeted with a few designs based upon some of the best stuff from the past.
P.S. Anyone interested in quad speed equipment I linked the Skatelog Forum in the title post, where you can always find great stuff.
Trained in Transportation Design at Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design, I have worked for the past 24 years in every facet of Entertainment Design as Conceptual Designer, up to Design Director. I am currently working for General Motors full time as a Senior 3D Visualization Artist. I am also running my design studio part time out of my home in Littleton, CO.
In the past, I have orchestrated teams as large as 100 on an international level , and as small as a few artists. Art Center gave me the formal training in Industrial Design via sketching and modeling to execute my designs.
The variety within the Entertainment Industry that I have been involved with includes: Television Commercial Set Design, 2D Animation Television Series, Restaurant Design and Illustration, Real Time 3D Interactive Gaming, Online 3D Web interface, CD ROM Magazine Design, Theme Park Attraction Design, Product Design and Development, and finally ending up in Entertainment based Advertising for Theatrical Films.
I have experience starting up both 2D, and 3D design departments, as well as moving into existing studio infrastructures of operation and working within established systems already in place.
