About Me

I like to make things move.
At the moment I'm using Cinema 4D, After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Nuke X
I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA.

BS Visual Effects and Motion Graphis | Art Institute of Pittsburgh, July 2013

I am currently working as Motion Designer at Animal VFX in downtown Pittsburgh.

I began my tenure in the arts when I was fairly young. I would draw cartoon characters and I was always taking painting classes. I built my first computer when I was thirteen and discovered Photoshop the following year. This would forever change my life once I discovered the endless possibilities that a computer enabled. All the while I was painting and drawing in similar fashion throughout high school. I attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the summer of 2010. In 2012 I was introduced to the guys and gals at Animal, based in Pittsburgh, PA.

I had interned there for two years and began freelancing for them in 2013. I continued freelancing for two years before I was hired full time by Animal in late 2015. I've always considered my self a dreamer and my motto is "if you can think it, you can make it". My style tends to stem from sci-fi and surrealistic genres as they have much in common. I look towards to the future full of excitement always thinking about my next project. In my spare time, I like to go camping, biking, building computers, and working on other side projects.
