Currently, I am a contract motion graphics designer/animator at the Department of State. I work with a wide range of producers, clients, contractors, and agencies to create clean, modern, and fresh graphics for a international audience. In addition to the Department of State being able to do motion graphics in house, I have also brought with me over 6 years of production house experience.
Most of my recent Freelance work has been with Nicole Haddock of Pictures on the Waves & Emmanuel Etim of Refined Creatives. Both whom I’ve worked closely with before and continue enjoy working with often.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked at some pretty amazing places. From 2007 to the end of 2011, I worked as a Graphic Artist and eventually Senior Graphics Artist at RHED Pixel. There along with a amazing team, I designed and animated several award winning graphics animations.
While in school, I worked as a Producer for one of the first student run HD production studios called VCU-TV/HD in Richmond, VA. During my year there, I produced two 30 minute documentaries following the Richmond Ambulance Authority and the LifeEvac helicopter units. One of the documentaries was nominated for a Capital Emmy in the Public/Current/Community Affairs Program/Special in 2007. Prior to that I spent a short time in the news working at WTVR CBS6, balancing two jobs and courses.
I’m very passionate about design, in my spare time I also like to create icons. You’ll also find some of my icon sets on GraphicRiver. I’m also a avid gadget geek, constantly keeping up with the latest cellphones, laptops, OSs, trends and whatever gears and toys I happen to find. I’d love to hear from you, I can be contacted numerous ways!
