I'm a freelance animator, illustrator, and photographer located in Portland, OR. I graduated from Point Park University with a BA in cinema, concentrating in cinematography. After school, I jumped into two film projects: Battery Life, a short stop motion film and Fursonas, a feature length documentary. As my abilities in cinematography and photography were strengthening, I simultaneously began developing my skills in motion design and illustration. I found that many of the same principles of film making applied to design, which opened up a world of creative possibilities for me.  My background as a filmmaker has equipped me with the tools of a storyteller and the eye of a cinematographer.  As an illustrator and motion designer, I help solve problems through thoughtful design.
