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.

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.
