Los Angeles, CA

I grew up in the small city of Macomb, Michigan, I am the youngest son of two history teachers. I graduated from The Motion Picture Institute of Michigan, and currently working as a video editor/motion graphic designer for InterMedia Advertising, a direct response advertising agency in Woodland Hills, producing TV commercials. I currently reside in Los Angeles, California.

I primarily work with After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Cinema 4D, as well as the rest of Adobe’s Creative Suite and Final Cut Studio. On top of being a motion graphics artist, I am also a cinematographer, a professional wrestler, a well-renown magician, I can solve a 7-sided Rubik’s cube, I am drug and alcohol free, and a proud graduate of P90X.
