Mervin Manufacturing

Mervin Manufacturing Sample

I had the pleasure of rebuilding the Mervin Manufacturing website, which was long overdue. With the help of a designer, I built a new WordPress template and completed all development myself, resulting in a clean and user-friendly responsive site that will continue to add more features over time.


Target Sample

I worked as a Flash developer and animator for Target's interactive timeline where users can interact with individual points in Target's history and filter by different categories. I also led the development and animation for Where We Work, an interactive tour of Target's different workplaces filled with rich photos, text, and video.

Health Corner and ChefMD Online

During my time at Marx Creative, I worked on the publishing and distribution of the Health Corner TV Series for Walgreens, which aired on Lifetime. I assisted with the distribution of video online and through DVDs, and helped to develop an in-store video network initiative with Walgreens. Additionally, I led the development of the website, which included a custom CMS with recipe searching and health calculators.

Let’s Be Frank

Let’s Be Frank Sample

I produced, co-directed, and edited "Let's Be Frank," a 30-minute digital video for the Milwaukee Public Television Student Operations program, while in the Television and Video Production associates degree program at Milwaukee Area Technical College. Our team won the best director award, and the short film aired on Milwaukee Public Television.

The Autumn View

The Autumn View Sample

Throughout my high school and college years, I played guitar in several bands, including "The Autumn View". Our first full-length album, "Fist-Fighting with Broken Wrists," was released in 2003, and I designed the album artwork. We also recorded a 2-song EP in Chicago with producer Matt Allison at Atlas Studios, and played a CD release show for our album. We have a collection of music available on Soundcloud, including our split EP with 52 Pick-Up, "For All The Wrong Reasons..." and footage from our recording session and tour.
