About Me

I am an experienced motion graphics, animation, and VFX artist. In my free time I enjoy Freehand/computer drawing and fine art. I love art and I’m always up for a creative challenge. Every since I was little I have been doodling and daydreaming. I’m always seeking a project to get my creative juices flowing. While Interning at Daily Planet Ltd. I fell in love with motion graphics and the artistic atmosphere of a post production house. Since then I haven’t stopped creating motion graphics. I graduated from DePaul University in 2009 with a Bachelors of Arts in Animation. I have professional experience with a wide range of production grade programs and plug-ins. Recently, I have been doing freelance project all over Chicago. I have been working with After Effects and most recently have been expanding my talents to include 3d work. Through my internship and freelance work for the past 4 years I have had valuable opportunities to participate in the entire production process, from start to finish. My main goal: make it look sexy.
