About Me

Freelance Designer / Animator currently based in New York City. For the past 7 years I have worked in both Broadcast and Commercial mediums. Over the past year I have left the staff world and gone freelance in order to push myself farther and take on a greater variety of projects.

Over the years, I have been responsible for the design and animation on a variety of projects. These include the past four years of the ESPN Nascar Sprint Cup Broadcast Package, the last two years ESPN Indycar Broadcast Package, 64th Emmy Awards, Miss America 2014 & 2015, The 30th Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony screen design and broadcast package, and many more.​​

Primarily I use After Effects and Cinema 4D as my main toolset. I am very familiar with Vray and more recently have been using Arnold for 3D rendering. Aside from Design and Animation, I also composite and understand working within a team along the 3D pipeline. Currently have a working knowledge of Nuke with the desire to learn more. Constantly open to learning new tools and workflows in order to create compelling visuals.

Based out of New York City, however willing to travel for freelance opportunities as well as work remotely.
