About Me

I am a graduate of the animation program at Huntington University, and have spent the last sixteen years working in 3D, animation, and computer graphics.

As a freelancer, I have learned to work quickly and efficiently, and to be adaptable to the job and software at hand. This has allowed me to thrive in nearly every media environment: Features and short films, broadcast, TV shows, advertising, non-profit and web content, VR and mobile apps, and live shows.

Although I am a longtime Maya user, I have experience in both C4D and Blender, as well as After Effects and Photoshop for motion graphics, compositing, design, and 2D animation. I consider myself a strong technical artist: I love creating beautiful images to tell stories, but I also enjoy solving challenging problems that arise during the production process.

Give me a shout-out if you have a question, or if I can help you with a project, whether great or small.
