2000 ~ 2004
The main objectives as creative director is to open brand awareness and development for support of LifeClick. Dr. J is a world-renown doctor of regenerative techniques. I am re-branding and developing a new online presence that will better define Dr. J's practice. I am also helping finish the development of his patent-pending LifeClick EMS software that will begin the sales phase in 2018. This is a unique medical record that will help doctors better care for their patients and give patients control over their medical record. I am helping develop the UI and best-practices of the software, as well as, develop a support help desk for the software.

Upon joining Heartland Church, I designed and installed a major upgrade to the main sanctuary and new student facility's video and lighting systems. This entailed installing a 16x9 LED wall on 3 controlled motors. I installed pipe and stage drape to help update the stage look and acoustics. I installed new lighting and re-designed the current lighting scheme. I installed TV's and a distributed 70v speaker system throughout the campus with a live feed of service. I negotiated new contracts for complete in-house print production equipment. This saved tremendous money on outsourced material. I also designed and established a new branding campaign which included an undated logo, worship guide, print collateral, and website.
I also manage all onsite IT and network infrastructure, in-house print design and production, graphic design, web design, producing all live productions, and equip and train volunteers.

Upon starting, I redesigned the current website to be responsive. I brought all our IT services in-house and strengthened our WIFI to accommodate our guests on the weekend. I upgraded the student sanctuary with stage drape and video projection. I built a staff website for communication forms and information. I was responsible for weekly scripting of our Vista Spyder video processor and keeping it updated and managed. I upgraded our Ross Vision video switcher with more RAM so it would boot and run faster. I also was able add a chroma black and white effect for live video. I oversaw all aspects of our control room and A/V infrastructure.

Palm Valley Health Care, Inc.
Mission, TX | palmvalleyhealthcare.com
Palm Valley Home Health Care is the largest home health company in South Texas with over 300 field nurses and 7 branches. My role as the IT Administrator was to keep every branch remotely connected through a VPN, keep multi-OS systems up-to-date, manage and support each field nurse. We rolled out the first EMR (electronic medical record) in South Texas with every nurse able to complete each visit on a mobile device. I incorporated a remote solution to take control of each mobile device when support was needed to reduce the nurse's travel time and expenses. I saved $41,000 in computer upgrade costs by implementing a cross-OS solution of Windows and Linux computers running on an Intel Atom.

I have learned that leadership is not given but earned. When you lead a vision effectively people want to follow. I desire to be an influencer in life and that is a skill that is constantly being developed.
The first task at Heartland was to upgrade their production environment in both the main sanctuary and new student facility. This included installing a new LED wall, lighting, architectural dimmers, stage drape, adding Waves to the existing Venue FOH console, relocating the control room, adding a confidence monitor, and so much more.
I shot and edited this video for the launch of our new branding and vision statement.

This later became the foundation of Eventcamp template. "Necessity of IIT and Application Cases" was held on September 27th, 2012 at Houston, TX.
When we launched our new branding and vision statement, we wanted a vision video to highlight the expanse of what God is doing in this church. We sought to tell the story of not just where we came from but where we are going and the life change that is happening along the way.
