I have extensive experience with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects and other Adobe products, Microsoft Office and Final Cut Pro. I use a variety of multimedia authoring tools, layout, 3D modeling, animation, and morphing software. I am quick to learn the latest “Intranet” tools—wiki, databases, version control systems—as needed, on both PC and Macintosh. I have created sites using Moveable Type, WordPress and GoogleSites, and built my own site with HTML and CSS.


A selection of educational multimedia projects that I worked on at the Interactive Media Laboratory can be seen at

"Computer Morphing as a Diagnostic Tool for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome" 1993. Thesis project, Department of Biomedical Visualization, UIC, and presented as an interactive computer program in the Scientific Poster Session at the World Congress for Biomedical Communications, June 1994, Orlando FL.

"Characterization and inhibitor sensitivity of human sperm phospholipase A2: Evidence against pivotal involvement of phospholipase A2 in the acrosome reaction" Molecular Reproduction and Development, Volume 27, Issue 4, pages 305–325, December 1990
