Motion graphics designer and digital creative. Hundreds of companies have used my videos to tell their stories, educate customers, and simplify the complex. I've animated videos for everyone from startups to the Fortune 500.
I know NTROPIC has a lot of choices in hiring talent, so it's important that I earn your trust. If you're curious, here's a little bit about me.
I received my Bachelor's of Science from Huntington University in Digital Media Arts. While I wasn't taking classes, I was freelancing for local ad agencies, completing an internship, and leading the student AdFed Chapter. Following graduation, I moved to Chicago, where I worked as lead motion graphics designer for Heave Ho Productions. During my time there, I created animated content for names like Disney, GQ, and Pfizer. In 2016, I relocated to the Bay Area to work as lead motion designer with BX Films.
They say that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. The collection of projects below are more than just samples of my work, they’re the result of some 9-to-5 fun.
Cisco needed a compelling video to introduce users to their latest app, Cisco Spark. Working with both Launch Squad and BX Films, I created the style guide based on their branding, and animated the whole video from start to finish.
Staying within the guidelines of Cisco's established aesthetic, I pushed the colors and motion in this piece to captivate the viewer. Rather than focus on flashy graphics, we decided to take a stripped-down approach to showcase Spark's elegant interface.
Nuix Security was searching for a concise animation to show off their latest product, Nuix Insight. The goal was to keep the video as short, sleek and sexy as possible. I worked with BX Films and agency Launch Squad to create this project. After the project was finished, the client commented, ""I don't think I've ever been more excited to authorize payment for anything in my life."
We quickly turned around a handful of different visual styles to nail the look and feel of the final video. The final result was a combination of wireframe linework and robust colors on white.
When you have a big client like Wordpress, it's important to show that a large company still understands the needs of a small business. BX Films worked with Launch Squad to tell the story of their customers.
Using UI from Wordpress, we crafted simple but captivating motion graphics to showcase the wide number of use cases for Wordpress templates. We created 3 videos in total, each one highlighting a different business or customer.
