After being raised with a super-8 and Star Wars stop motion movies, I went to film school at Northwestern (with a double major in Anthropology), and then worked film crew in the Chicago production scene.

Along the way, I picked up a Mac and learned gobs of graphics, and ended up at Industrial Light & Magic’s Art Department. From there, it was down to So-Cal to work in the blossoming motion graphics scene — doing it all as an animator, designer, Art Director, Creative Director, and Director.

With a passion for storytelling, I love to mix live action with beautiful graphics, typography, and vfx. I’ve won awards — Emmy, Promax, Telly, FWA, and SXSW filmfest; with an array of clients such as Gatorade, NFL, Disney, Cisco, Sprint, Lexus, and Nike.
