Hats include author, editor, researcher, video producer, digital artist, magazine columnist, independent consultant, and former university instructor. “After studying crop circles, I started making digital art whose themes include these mysterious glyphs, number in itself (math and numerology), number in space (sacred geometry and architecture), number in time (musical principles), and number in space and time (astronomy and astrology). I have created numerous training videos on AutoCAD, Photoshop, 3ds max, SketchUp, and Revit.
In the early days I self-published CD-ROMs and then DVD-ROMs. More recently I have partnered with Sybex/Wiley, Video2Brain, Infinite Skills, and Lynda.com where you can find my current video training products. Along the way I have written numerous tips and tricks articles at AECbytes, and continue to write a column called Beyond Photoshop in Photoshop User Magazine (I’ve written 65 articles at last count). I’ve given talks at various conventions and done consulting for many companies on AutoCAD, Photoshop, 3ds max, and SketchUp.
After moving to Cortes I did a lot of reading and growing as a person. I had a series of epiphanies which resulted in me taking a new direction in 2009. It took me more than a year of full time work to create an epic documentary film called Secrets in Plain Sight, a densely-packed series about esoteric patterns found in art, architecture, and urban design. Volume 1 runs 3hrs43min and is free to watch online. Secrets in Plain Sight Volume 2 is my latest feature documentary film, a continuing mind-expanding exploration. Please join me!”
