 About The Artist 

For the past decade, I’ve worked across industries as a producer and animator in advertising, television, and video games and I'd love to bring my ability and passion to your next project.

 

I have years of experience with the production process from concept to delivering final files for both live action and motion design projects. This experience includes working on set for a small TV documentary as well as commercial shoots and composing motion graphics and footage in a variety of non-standard aspect ratios on tight deadlines. Some of the client projects I've worked on include:

Animator

  • Hard Rock Casino Tulsa

  • Foxwoods Resort and Casino

  • The Strat Hotel, Casino & Tower

  • Waffle Stop

  • Cedars Sinai

Producer | Production Coordinator​​

  • The State Fair of Texas

  • Baylor Orthopedic Spine Hospital in Arlington

  • La Quinta Inn & Suites

  • First Financial Bank

  • The Dallas Arboretum

When I’m not animating or producing, I mentor others in best practices for design and video production using training materials that I created from scratch. I’ve worked as an adjunct professor at the University of South Alabama teaching aspiring animators, I’ve volunteered my time for the Elevate Mentorship Program in Mobile, Alabama, and I train junior and senior creatives at my current company.

Since the beginning of my career, I’ve focused on channeling my talent and creativity into meaningful and powerful results. I take pride in the work I do, as well as the strong relationships I’ve built with clients and colleagues. I firmly believe in working hard, working together and having fun along the way. If you’re interested in learning more about me or my work, simply reach out.
I'd love to hear from you!
