When I was in grade school, my teachers all wrote the same thing on my evaluation: visual learner. It was clear that a diagram of a molecule or a picture of an ancient map helped me to understand the big idea or concept, better than any textbook could have done. Since then, I have embraced my ability to comprehend and communicate visually, developing skills and interests in photography, music, paint, graphic art, editing, live production, creative entertainment, and animation. The combination of my creative skills, my production experience, and my interest in visual learning led me to a true passion for motion design.

I think of motion design as a method to educate, inform, and entertain in not only a visual way, but a clear and concise one as well. I aspire to be a short-form filmmaker, creating film trailers, title sequences, closing credits, commercials, promos, logos, explainers, eCards, cooking how-tos, travel guides, book summaries, and music videos.

I am also a production manager and have been collaborating with creative teams in theater, special events, and television for the past decade. My experiences in every type of venue from old warehouses to Off-Broadway theaters, and the wide array of shows I have been a part of, from Into The Woods to the zombie apocolypse have given me an endlessly broad perspective on the production process.
