About Me

In his former life as an assistant professor in the School of Art and Design at the University of Illinois, Champaign Urbana, Byron had access to the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and became interested in seminal experiments in computer graphics. With his interest piqued by both the power of graphics and his own vision of its near-term potential, Byron left the academic world in 1987 to develop a career as a creative agent, providing graphic solutions for clients all over the world.

Subsequently, Byron gained a broad range of experience in marketing and advertising, computer graphics, web design, interactive design and information technology. He developed valuable, sought-after skill sets and accrued a career’s worth of real-world experience that put him at the forefront of emerging solutions for clients ranging from industry-leading corporations to new-tech start-ups. He helped launch products for Intel, helped design packaging for Lotus software (then the second-largest software company in the world), and more recently, he led creative teams in new-product development and rollout efforts for Anheuser-Busch, Cargill and Ralston Foods.

Although he’s been a partner at MindActive since 2003, Byron continues to polish the ever-useful skills of his academic roots by teaching professional workshops, by contributing as a member of the advisory board of St. Louis Community College and by conducting seminars for business professionals. … and plays acoustic bass in a jazz ensemble.
