Where:I was raised in Piscataway, New Jersey and Hershey, PA. After spending some time in Los Angeles, CA to begin my career, I moved to Pittsburgh, PA, where I currently work with some talented friends at Animal.
Why:I have that creative bug when anytime I am inspired, I want to make stuff. It’s a want that I need to fulfill every day that I’m alive. I love typography, photography, graphic design, experimental film and animation, sculptures, interactive media, virtual and augmented reality, and everything eles that makes the world we live in move forward.
Who:I’ve created work with great people at companies including Walt Disney World, Duck Tape, Ghirardelli, Mattel, Dick’s Sporting Goods, McDonalds, American Eagle Outfitters, Rite Aid, Jamba Juice, Skinny Cow, Levis, and Nickelodeon's Yo Gabba Gabba, among many others.
How:For 2D art & design, I use Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. For 2D animation, I use Toon Boom Harmony, and previously Animate (previously known as Flash). For 3D, I have experience in Cinema4D and Maya. I approach each concept individually by researching or using my experience to choose the most efficient software for a unique look and feel for each project.
