I was born with a passion for art, design, and animation. My journey has carried me from the DIY and guerrilla role of underground VJ, onward to music television on-air packaging, and into maturity as a seasoned motion graphics producer on countless feature film marketing campaigns. These many years of experience have gifted me with the ability to attune to the essence and balance of design, while crafting creative viewer/user experiences which reinforce any project.
Whether as a project lead or as an attentive collaborator, I am inspired by teamwork in design innovation, and shared excitement for the creative process. A native acumen in perceiving design and user challenges and a playful, inventive, problem-solving nature, help insure that the team's creative process is a rewarding one and the project goals are met.
When I'm not wrangling photons, I reside in suburban NJ, and enjoy snowboarding, hiking, yoga, tennis, running, and helping my two sons in their Scouting endeavors.
