Born from second generation Photographers, Ocean had access to a wealth of art supplies and an artistic community. This foundation set the ground work for what would follow.
Shortly after graduating from Ohio University, with a dual degree in Interactive Multimedia & Graphic Design, he took a job in Switzerland working for Fransican's International. After a year in Switzerland where he learned how to rock climb, how not to speak French and a little PHP, Ocean returned to the States. The years since he has worked for: WOUB (a local PBS Station), Pixel & Ink, Inc. a start up in Alexandria, Virginia, Matrix Group International and finally PBS KIDS as a Web Designer / Flash Video Expert. During this time he co-founded a rock climbing stewardship non-profit called Mid Atlantic Climbers and has continued to DJ drum & bass since 1997.
Ocean Eiler's lecture will be 6 p.m., Monday, April 8 in the Design Studio.
