Below you will find my motion graphics and demo reels, as well as, videos of previous projects, and images I’ve created.
I am a Motion Graphics Designer and 3D Artist who has a quirky, colorful esthetic and a well-rounded set of knowledge in many applicable fields of interest. I have recently discovered the future in Virtual Reality Development and am vigorously working finding my place in that future.
VR Design and Game Development
Motion Graphics Design
I like to work in 3D space or at least 2.5D space. Flat is boring. But if your project requires flat, I’m willing to be bored for a while.
Models, Textures, Environments, Lights, Camera, Action!
Multi-Media and Video Production
I like to work on set (camera op, director, actor, crew) or behind the scenes (photographer, documentarian) and in post (editing, CGI, compositing, keying, special effects, sound effect, scoring).
