My Latest Work
Throughout my 15+ years of digital experience, I’ve worked on everything from illustration, graphic design, web design and animation. For the past seven years, my main focus has been Motion Graphics and Video.
My longtime background as a creative has helped me develop and refine my skills that don’t just happen overnight. Ideation, storyboarding, creative, design, and technical abilities relating to software are all essential in delivering projects that are innovative and eye-catching, where every detail counts.
Working mostly in a small 2-3 person studio, the bulk of work, from conceptualization, throughout to final development, projects are completed as collaborations or solo projects. The constant is my role as Lead Art Director, brainstorming fresh ideas and delivering new concepts.

Having a Plan
As with any kind of visual storytelling, it’s good to be prepared. My training at the School of Visual Arts has helped me develop this skill From knowing the shots, understanding the angles and setting up composition, everything necessary from beginning to end to hit your mark, make your point and close with a strong ending that brings everything together.Featured below are a few highlight pages from my storyboards. For a full view of all the conceptual ideas put to paper before development, please visit the Storyboards page.
Making Things Happen
From researching then purchasing video and audio equipment to prepping and setting up equipment on location or in studio, I’ve done everything from working and directing talent to operating cameras.
Working at NewYork-Presbyterian created a unique opportunity to record interviews, speakers, script scenarios and any sort of b-roll footage we could need, all within hospital grounds. For four years, I’ve worked handling video cameras, field monitors, audio recorders, teleprompters, and camera sliders. Shooting scenes and interviews including everything from lighting subjects to using cloth backgrounds and green screen.
On a personal level, my own interests have lead me to acquire professional video/audio recording equipment to be fully functional and operate on my own. Brainstorming, script writing, storyboarding, recording, editing and production can all be done at home. It’s not just a career, it’s a creative mindset that is continually active and ready for opportunities to discover and deliver.
