Growing expertise since 2000 As a creative tyke with a big personality, I was quickly drawn to art, gadgets and media. I started making my own home videos when I was barely able to read.
When the computer rage sparked in the early 90's, I found a new passion to add. I took classes in art, computers, photography and video production. At Georgia State University, I studied computer science with a minor focus in film studies, yet I was still craving more to learn. I won best film student of the year in 1997 and I continue to make compelling videos 20 years later.
I started dabbling in graphic design in 2000 and after my first job at Delta Air Lines and my next at America Online (AOL) Time Warner, I took my first leap into the role of Marketing and Promotions Assistant at the Journal Broadcast Group. I dove into web development, graphic design and marketing for 4 radio stations in Tucson, AZ. I found my niche. I found my passion. This was only the beginning. I moved back to Atlanta, GA and continued to gain experience in multiple industries (technology, medical, sports, etc.) becomming an Adobe expert and highly skilled with all avenues of digital marketing, brand development, graphic design, web design, publications, digital media, SEO/SEM, web content writing, blogging, social media management, online ad management, photography and video production. If I didn't already know how to do it, I quickly taught myself how and then mastered it.
I designed billboards for musicians such as Matchbox 20 at age 22, I led C-level round table discussions on social media at age 25 and I was the head of Publications and New Media for the Beijing and Vancouver Olympic Games before I turned 30.
In December 2013, I moved to Portland, OR for a new adventure in the Pacific Northwest and founded Vision8Studio on April 8, 2014. I now have clients from all over the United States.
In 2017, Vision8Studio started offering an array of services to local actors/actresses, including classes.
