A B O U T
As a full-time, professional designer/CD and visual effects artist for New York-based design and production companies, I have spent the past 15 years conceptualizing and realizing projects for clients in every industry. The examples on this website draw from those experiences, reflecting the energy and technical capabilities I bring to each endeavor.
I have worked in a wide range of various production environments and have pitched, animated, VFX-supervised and directed a diverse array of projects, and have managed teams large and small. These experiences have equipped me with a thorough understanding of the production pipeline, enabling me to apply unique, efficient and on-budget creative solutions in every instance. With a strong background in VFX, design and 3D animation, I constantly seek ways to develop original techniques and create new visual approaches. I love to help directors with their treatments as well as work out technical methodologies. And when it comes to advertising projects, I love to turn initial drafts into fully realized products.
My intent is to share my experience with a company and be part of a team in which everyone works selflessly together toward common goals.
