Everyone has a story. I tell those stories with color, shape, and movement, whether it's on paper, canvas, wall, shirt, or screen. I am a traditional artist (sketch/paint), motionographer (motion graphics designer/animator), digital painter, projection mapper, and branding/graphic designer. Design is everywhere and used for everything, whether it's a wedding, party, fundraiser, or just a story you've been needing to tell through imagery or animation! Just let me know your idea; I'm sure that together, we can make it happen.

What to Expect
I like to fill in every possible gap and move as much in step with a client as I can. That means you tell me your dream, and I pull inspiration, colors, shapes, and sketches into a "Mood Book" that you can peruse and from which you can choose a direction. That's followed by storyboards, then style frames, and initial drafts that always come back to YOU to ensure that every detail is accurate and to your liking. I never want to move ahead without my client's input. After all, this is YOUR story, not mine; I just have the privilege of telling it.
I spent the first half of my life pursuing a career in music (which I still do -- look me up on here as a musician, too!), earning a Bachelor of Music in Harp Performance from Converse College in 2009. After several years of teaching and performing, I realized I had other skills I would like to develop. I enrolled at Full Sail University, graduating in March 2017 as Valedictorian with a Bachelor of Science in Digital Arts and Design. There, I learned how to use a large percentage of the Adobe Creative Cloud software, including PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects, Audition, and Premiere Pro, and also Cinema4D. I made music videos, branded fictitious companies, and learned about cutting-edge techniques that are used in international entertainment and business. I love music AND the arts, and am always trying to improve my technique and expand my niche.
Additional Booking Notes
Typically, I supply my own tech - MacBook Pro, the Adobe Creative Cloud software, a projector, etc. However, each project is different and I'll be sure to make you aware if there is anything additional I would need!
Influences & Inspiration
I have too many influences to list, really! As a painter, I admire and often emulate the Impressionists. As a motion designer, I watch title and credits sequences -- especially from studios like Marvel (those guys are SICK! You should always stay to watch that stuff). Some of my personal favorites are Imaginary Forces, Industrial Light and Magic, Exceptional Minds, Scully . . . It's an endless list, really. For hands-on, I watch Weta Workshop.
Mostly my own equipment!
