I work as a motion graphic designer and illustrator. I'm excited about new media, team-building, education and mentorship. In my personal work I seek the intersection of imaginary products and genuine brand marketing. With a preferred medium of GIF (hard G), I consider social media an artist's statement and living will. I live and work in LA and am open to animation-first projects.
