About

 
I’m a freelance vfx and motion designer from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I formerly worked at a digital sports marketing agency where I learned the ropes of the motion design industry. While working there I had the opportunity to work with and learn from some truly inspiring entrepreneurs.

I started freelancing full time in May of 2013, the same week I married the love of my life. Ever since then I’ve been learning, growing, experimenting, pulling my hair out and loving every minute of it.
