How I ideate:


My experience ranges the full gamut from film to interactive, from 360 VR to theater projections to IG story campaigns.

I am at home crafting superb experiences within any delivery mechanism / outlet channel.


Happy to further discuss any specifics on projects, aspects, or creative process therein.

UI/UX Reel

Broad background in code-based animation. I wrote the front-end UI code for the examples in the video below.

I've animated with HTML5, AE scripting, AS3/Java (+ Greensock), proprietary mobile platforms, even some Processing.

I understand responsive/adaptive design and can navigate CSS to interface smoothly with devs/troubleshoot projects.

I'm a quick study–picking up new tools/programs/languages very swiftly when needed.

I am looking to parlay my skills further into AR/VR design.


My most-recent interactive projects:

a choose-your-own-adventure series for Snuggle fabric softener and a 360 Facebook VR for Mr. Robot.

The screen-captured examples below are from a few years back, as my recent campaigns have been video/social content.

For a more extensive look at my abilities, please see my client work gallery and general reel above.
