Full Throttle Riding Academy gets a new look!
Jason Curdy of Full Throttle Riding Academy came to me and asked about updating his current event management web site to a Responsive theme that works with both Mobile and Tablets.

Putting My 3D Modeling Skills to Work!
Prior to the release of Linx Fusion Active Noise Cancelling Headphones from Able Planet we had decided to explore other avenues for the Hard Shell Case that came inside the packaging. The previous case was very generic, rectangular and kind of bulky. When traveling it is important to note that less is more. Able Planet […]
Holiday Review Promotion – A HUGE HIT!
Just recently, I revisited an excellent marketing approach from Christmas of 2013. The results were amazing! Able Planet was desperately seeking the immediate needs of positive influence from end consumers. As the Creative Director, I took the initiative to take it into my own hands. I had to figure out a way to generate positive […]
Pumpkin Patch and the Park!
Every Halloween season, I make it a point to get out with my great family and do a photography session. This Saturday, we spent our time at a pumpkin patch in Parker, Colorado. From what I understand, it is their last year doing it so we made it a point to get our three-year-old out […]

Hard day for me – RIP Andrew
Today was the memorial service for one of my life-long friends Andrew. He passed away in an automobile accident out off of I-70 and C-470. Him and I had spent a significant amount of time together when we were younger. We lived together for nearly three years and were pretty much inseparable. I got the […]
Pallet Renderings for Able Planet
On occasion, while working with Able Planet, I had to produce a rendering of product seen on a pallet for a larger buyer like Costco or Sams Club. With a limited amount of time my best option was to turn to 3DS Max by AutoDesk. I was able to do all the mapping using packaging […]

An acquaintance of mine, Donald, contacted me requesting a photoshoot of his 2013 Kia Optima. He wanted to enter it into a contest online to be recognized on a nationwide scale. The photo session took place in Highlands Ranch, Colorado with the great Rocky Mountains as the backdrop. We shot about two-hundred images throughout the […]
