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, 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 my passion for motion design.
I am primarily interested short-form filmmaking such as trailers, film credits, animated music, promos, and commercials. I also have a strong interest in education and hope to find ways to use animation to teach young kids, and an excitement for immersive multi-media productions. I aspire to use motion design to educate and communicate ideas in visual, entertaining ways.
I am also a production manager and have been collaborating with creative teams in theater, special events, and television for the past decade. I learned how the angle of lights can change the emotion of a scene, how color choice in a scenic design matters, how music can lift an audience up, how a projection can transport them to another world. I bring my experience in live production and my passion for design together to create motion graphics. Please see LinkedIn for additional credits in live production.
