I've always been fascinated by immersive multimedia.
Since I was young, I've been fascinated by multimedia's power to transport a viewer to other worlds, to turn basic shapes into amazing experiences by painting with light...there's something magical about it. I finally got the chance to try my hand at multimedia as a music student, of all things. I took a shot in the dark, assembled a team, and together we prepared our first multimedia work for a popular local art festival. It was a wild success, and with each subsequent project, often collaborating with others, I've learned more and more about fusing art and technology together.
The right tools for the job.
Isadora and QLab. Two of the gold standard software packages for live show control. They're just a few of the programs I've used to bring experiences to life in the past.
