Videography / Editing / Animation / After Effects
Over 12 years professional experience creating and producing videos and animations for television and the web. I do ongoing freelance work for Marvel Comics, creating short animations from the original comic book artwork. I love After Effects and using it to create beautiful imagery. I am also a musician and create a lot of my own scores and backing tracks. I am constantly looking for new challenges and projects.
Background & Professional History
Born in New Jersey, I spent several years as a musician and studio engineer. I attended the Institute of Audio Research in 1996 and went on to work at several recording studios as well as a part time teacher of audio engineering. Eventually I made my way out to Arizona where I began working in audio and video production for American Audio Video. I began working as a full time video producer creating and editing public service announcements for companies like Earth911 and Arizona AMBER Alert. I transitioned into animation and discovered a love of After Effects while working for Radiant Church and developing my skills as a freelancer over the next several years. While working for Vuria, a web based marketing company in Scottsdale, I was able to work on projects for companies like Fox Restaurants, and Kennedy Diamonds. Currently I work as a freelance animator and motion graphics artist full-time with companies like Captured Planet Studios and ODesk, and have been fortunate enough to create animations for clients such as Marvel Comics, GoDaddy, Lionforge Comics, Valiant Comics and several others.
