Motion Design

I spent many years working as a Motion Designer for various creative studios and have also had the privilege of building a wide client base as an independent artist. I have worked with Fortune 500 clients, record labels, agencies, and other independent artists across the country. Together, we solved creative problems of all kinds. Developing linear story-telling practice and collaborating with different disciplines over the years have helped shape my skillset for my current position as a User Experience Designer.
