About Me

Animator + Motion Designer

I have worked in animation and motion design for over 15 years. I am versed in traditional animation styles as well as software.

I have experience with tiny not-for-profits to massive global corporations. I also teach a few course on Designing for the Web and Devices, Interactivity and User Interface / User Experience design.
