Hello! I am a creative, learner, hacker, and maker of things. I enjoy communicating through graphic design, web development, photography, and videography. My home base is Naperville, IL, but I love to travel! In late 2012, I toured across America as a videographer for three documentaries in production by 20K Films.
My goal is to create interactive educational experiences to promote learning about science, the environment, and conservation. A project related to this goal is to visit all major zoos, aquariums, and museums in the United States. I’m passionate about volunteer work and have been a weekly volunteer at Shedd Aquarium for 7 years, and additionally help dig up dinosaurs in Montana for Carthage College / Dino Discovery Museum. (And yes, flyer dinosaurs = birds. Birds are, in fact, dinosaurs).
In addition to enjoying my internet ramblings, you can check out samples of my work on lshields.com!
