I am a NYC-based Freelance Senior Art Director in a long-term relationship with Design, Direction, Motion, and 3D working in the industry for 15 years. I am available for on location and remote freelance work. Additionally, I worked in the Interactive industry for the first 5 years of my career focusing on bringing motion to that world. As a result, I have a strong knowledge in app design, web development, and interactivity. I have a passion for both motion graphics and digital and I am excited by the idea of bridging the ever-shrinking gap between the two.
I have directed talented teams and been involved in every part of the process from design frames through live-action shoots. I am great at rallying a team to push themselves and put out the best possible work they can, while at the same time, keeping the process enjoyable. I'm also not afraid to get my hands dirty. In fact, I love it!
I am passionate about honing my craft whenever I have free time. I create and catalog my experiments here and also on Instagram. Some of my favorite tools to create with include Cinema 4D, Redshift, Octane, Cylces, and X-particles. I can't get enough of the design and motion world. I understand that this career is about lifelong learning and I find that to be one of the most enjoyable things about it.
