Highlights

I’m a senior/lead animator. I also do compositing. I’ve been working in the industry for 14 years on projects that include network rebrands (NatGeo, CMT, Oxygen, BBC First); launch videos (Apple, Amazon Kindle); commercials (Target, Budwiser, Toyota, Chase); interactive/big screen art displays (Microsoft, Target); documentaries and educational programing (The Chicago 10, Nova); films (It’s Kind of a Funny Story; D.E.B.S.); in-stadium sports graphics (U.S. Open, MLB); and pretty much any other kind of job you can think of.
