Hello!

I'm a Blender generalist currently stationed in Portland, Oregon. I have a bachelor's degree in Art and Design from NC Sate University. My current line of work lies mainly in 2D and 3D motion graphics for advertising, but I also provide the full creative package for your digital media: concept, script, design, soundtrack, animation, and even voice talent.

Additionally, I offer extended services through my network of artists, video producers and videographers. If I can't do it, I know someone who can!

Animation

Do you have an exciting message to share? I love making animated videos with high visual appeal and attention to detail. I can adapt to any art style, from the photorealistic to stick-figure cartoons, and everything in between. Most of my professional (and not so professional) videos can be found on my vimeo page.

Artwork

My favorite aspect of CG art is taking the abstract, and giving it tangible scale, form, and texture. I often like to share my .blend files for others to pick apart and learn from. Although the artwork you see here is all 3D, I also enjoy 2D vector graphics and illustration. Inkscape is my 2D weapon of choice. I regularly update my tumblr with these works and more.

Music

A lot of the sound and music you hear in my videos is produced by myself. If you'd like to hear more, my SoundCloud page has lots of experimental tracks and most of them are CC licensed.

Training

I have experience teaching Blender to people of all age groups and skill levels. In 2014, I joined Youth Digital as an instructional designer to produce what I sincerely believe to be the greatest Blender animation course for kids. Find out more about that here.

Feel free to contact me for any reason!
