I've been fortunate to have a variety of experiences across many disciplines. In addition to my reel, feel free to follow the link below to my full portfolio of motion work.You can also check out my employment and soft skill experience on my resume.
I'm a multi-disciplinary artist with 15 years of agency and production house experience. I’m a VFX artist, motion designer and creative director. I use that combined experience to see a project through to completion - either solo or managing a team.Currently I am a creative director and project manager in the electronic visualization and immersive technologies field.I'm always open to new and exciting opportunities - even ones that diverge from my past experience!
Note: I was standing in for a friend in this photo while he adjusted his lighting. I ended up kind of liking it.
Thanks for reaching out.You're awesome and you deserve awesome things!
In addition to my normal duties as a creative director and motion graphics animator, I've also had the amazing opportunity to be a part of several VFX teams for feature films.
