I am an emmy winning motion graphics artist with a diverse background of work environments. I've had the opportunity to work on a wide array of projects anywhere from local TV stations & post production houses to national clients including CBS, Comcast, The Smithsonian, National Geographic, Microsoft, WWF, NHL's Capitals, Kings, and Stars, NBA's Washington Wizards, Sacramento Kings, and Cleveland Cavaliers, Twitch.tv, Nike's Street League Skateboarding, and ESPN creating everything from commercials & web videos to short animated GIFs and music videos. I am active in the motion graphics community and was selected by MAXON to represent them and give presentations demoing their popular 3D application, Cinema 4D, at NAB 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. I also create training content for Lynda.com as one of their authors with expertise on motion graphics. I've art directed and executed the HD rebrand for both ABC's HD on-air brand plus their social media news blog, TBD.com, and the local cable network NewsChannel8 from concept to completion. I manage my own freelance motion graphics business called Eyedesyn where I work directly with numerous clientele to create the best, creative, and innovative designs, motion graphics, print ads, and logo designs. I've lead numerous projects and executed all phases of the creative process from developing budgets and estimates for projects to storyboarding, executing, and delivering final designs. I've consistently exceeded clients needs on a variety of motion graphics and visual effects projects. So far in my career, I've been honored to have won three Emmy's and a Promax/BDA Silver award along with being a presenter representing Maxon at NAB and animation meetup groups in DC, LA, and NYC. I'm highly proficient with Adobe After Effects, Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Final Cut, working on both Mac and PC platforms, efficiently working with either. Projects big or small, I've got the skills you need to achieve creative solutions to your needs. My resume and demo reel can be found on my website at:
