About me
When I join a project, I regularly ask my team, "How can I be of help?" I love what I do, and I'm always learning how to do it better. My roots are in designing for commercial animation (I've primarily designed for animation studios, on-site and remote) but I thrive on the challenge to tell stories in any field. Open to all opportunities in Los Angeles, and very curious about opportunities beyond (hence why I'm on The Dots!) Please reach out with any questions, I'd be happy to chat :) thank you!

This one was created pre-pandemic, and I plan on making 3 more to he

  • Stay Home, Stay Positive
    Stay Home, Stay and Motion Appetit created a Stay Home, Stay Positive prompt, asking artists to create clapping folks on balconies to celebrate and thank all the heroes who fought during the COVID-19 pandemic. The end result was compiled into a video and on an Instagram account. Here's my own balcony, a testament to my time at my favorite house in Savannah, Georgia.
