  BenCom brought me back on to help in the creation of revised client Flash presentations as well as the creation of a new look for marketing materials and presentations. I reworked many of the resulting assets to be more web-friendly, and used them to replace the previous graphics on BenCom's website.

EDUCATION
  State Technical Institute 1994-1996 Memphis, TN
  At the time there were not many places to get the kind of training I was looking for. State Tech offered a Graphic Art Technology program that covered much of what I was interested in.
   
  Memphis College of Art 1993 Memphis, TN
  I took a few foundation courses at Memphis College of Art before beginning the Graphic Art Technology program at State Tech. MCA didn't have much as far as computers at the time.
   
  Most of what I know about 3D, Animation, and Flash was learned on my own. I have a growing library of DVD's and video tutorials from The Gnomon Workshop. I occasionally subscribe to Lynda.com's Training as well. There are countless other resources that I utilize, but these are two of the primary ones.
