The Nob Hill Sundial is a educational installation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Designed for the Nob Hill Main Street program, it anchors the southeast corner of the Nob Hill Community Garden. The sundial is an educational tool for gardeners to learn what to plant throughout the year, and when harvest it. The unlike most sundials that function on an hourly basis, the Nob Hill Sundial functions on a monthly cycle.

Toad Road, a local clothing boutique, wanted a fresh, fun, sexy campaign in print and digital to promote their summer and fall lineup. Because they carry a limited inventory, the campaign focused on the idea that customer looks good in the clothes (or that they look just as good on the floor), instead of focusing on a garment that may sell out immediately.
The Toad Road creative 2013 campaign was conceived at Kobold Studios, by Mike Heighway, who art directed the campaign.

I was a part of a small team that produced high-end product visualization for Apple's MarCom division. We produced 3D and 2D graphics and documentation for use in Apple's merchandising and reseller programs. In this position I played a large role in developing the organizational structure and naming conventions for 2D and 3D files. For major product releases, I was brought out to work on-site at Apple. I was responsible for maintaining confidential files related to new product launches, and releasing these files to our out-of-house 3D team when they were approved for use.
