  • Shortcuts+

Shortcuts+

I’m currently working on phase two of a project I started years ago as an early introduction to mobile development. Stemming off my desire to become fluent in the keyboard shortcuts of the various softwares as a visual artist, I designed and built an app using modern web technologies and Cordova to release it as an Android App.

After almost 80,000 downloads, I’ve now redesigned the concept from the ground up, and using Angular 4 and Ionic, rolling it out to the Google and Apple App Store over the coming months.

  • Bells & Whistles

Bells & Whistles

After five years on a hiatus, I finally wrote, produced, directed and edited a music video once again. With a small cast and crew, and on an impromptu basis, we drove up and down Scotland to film Bells & Whistles, the first track of Leif’s Coffield’s upcoming EP.

It’s my first music video under an official label release, and the latest collaboration with my great friend and cinematographer Darren Eggenschwiler.

  • The Ambitious Girl

The Ambitious Girl

The Ambition Girl is a concept photography mixtape (or playlist if you will) stemming off my work as a graphic designer, portrait, fashion, and beauty photographer.

Inspired by a track on Washington DC’s own Wale, The Ambitious Girl explores the skillset that we as artists have to recognize and capture the potential we see in others.
