About

Artist, Designer & Animator.

For a time I studied film production at Hofstra University and Brooklyn College. It was a fun experience but I couldn't shake the feeling that something was missing. So I began taking some art and design courses to sharpen my eye. That's when everything changed. 

In 2012 I began making intricate paper collages and entered into my first exhibition. At around the same time I began getting the occasional graphic design gig making stuff for friends and local businesses. I had found my calling and so I dropped out of school to focus all my efforts on my creative career, while still educating myself with books and online tutorials. Best decision of my life!

Over the last few years I've had the extreme pleasure of working on some really great projects and my practice has expanded to include several mediums. Most recently I have been learning motion design in After Effects. I've fallen in love with the way animation combines my knowledge of film production and artistry. I look forward to learning more and in the future I aim to create an animated series.
