Throughout Ron’s career, he has produced work encompassing a wide range of design. Before he began working as a digital designer, he spent several years—while attending college—working as a draftsman. He performed 2D and 3D drafting both by hand and with computers. After graduating college with a degree in digital design, he worked with a variety of media:
- 3D Animation
- Video Production
- Motion Design
- Slide Presentations
- Web Design
- Game Design
- Typography & Graphic Design
Aside from being a visual artist, Ron is also a musician. He spent the greater part of his youth and adolescence learning, practicing, performing and recording music. With audio design being such a vital part of visual disciplines like animation, motion design and video production, it was just natural for Ron to combine his music and sound design talent in his visual media projects.
Ron returned to studying music for a time. He was quickly asked to teach at the music academy where he studied. The music academy where Ron began teaching music also provided lessons in digital audio recording, which rapidly galvanized his interest. Eventually, he opened his own music school and began to combine his digital design talents with his music and newly adopted audio recording. Ron began recording himself with video and audio equipment to produce instructional music videos. Even though Ron enjoyed teaching music and was praised by his students and their parents for his progressive music instruction, after 8 years, Ron felt he had to get his career back on track. He needed to assert his focus to digital design.
With a strong background in music and sound design combined with his prior motion graphic and video production talents, Ron closed his music school to recommence his pursuit to redefine his digital design career. Previously, Ron worked with producers and directors and was personally responsible for the post-production digital editing of audio, video and motion graphics for weekly television broadcasts. Additionally, Ron authored DVDs and web videos and produces all content including video, motion graphics, soundtracks and voice overs.
Ron is currently an independent digital designer. He produces, directs and edits all of the audio, video and motion graphics for his projects. He continues to author DVDs, CDs and sets up media for web delivery. Additionally, Ron is available to work with production film crews and video post-production projects.
Predominately, Ron is working with AVID, Premier Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Maya and Audition, performing post-production digital editing of audio, video and motion graphics. Ron has been designing and creating artwork for videos of Christian worship, music performances and theatrical productions as well as instructional videos. Ron is also creating motion graphics and presentations for digital distribution.
Ron has a digital design degree. He earned an Associate of Arts (degree) in Commercial Art with Computers from Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg, New Jersey, USA. He also attended New York University to learn to create and publish data-driven websites. Additionally, Ron attended The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan where he studied web based multimedia design and development with Adobe Flash.
