I spent my childhood drawing comics and painting, and for the past decade I have channeled my creativity professionally by widening my artistic skill set which now includes experience in illustration, motion graphics, and animation. I have also become intimately familiar with all aspects of video production, and my many talents include set design, storyboarding, building computer generated models, camera operator, non-linear editing, and compositing.

I have logged countless hours managing projects from start to completion, and I work in tandem with my clients to create the best final product possible. My dedication to the process and the joy of a job well done provide constant motivation to help me grow as an artist.
