About Me

I am an experienced motion graphics designer. I’m always seeking a project to challenge my creativity. I graduated from DePaul University in 2009 with a Bachelors of Arts in Animation. I have professional experience with a wide range of industry standard programs and plug-ins. Throughout my career, I have had valuable opportunities to participate in the entire production process, from start to finish. I know the intricacies involved in producing a creative and unique project, how to engage the client to better actualize their vision and that teamwork is key. I am also constantly learning and exploring new tools and techniques. Since motion graphics is ever-changing, so must I. I participate in Motion Graphics groups and communities. I watch NAB and SIGGRAPH presentations and attend Half Rez every year. I am dedicated to my craft and have a finger on the pulse of the industry.

My main goal: make it look sexy.
