I am an enthusiastic motion graphics designer and illustrator with over 8 years of experience working in After Effects, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and a proficiency in Autodesk Maya. Seeking a challenging position with a dynamic, creative team to contribute and strengthen artistic, technical and organizational skills. I thrive off of pushing the limits of my technical skills to reach the peaks of my imagination and creative vision. My growing proficiency in traditional art, digital art programs and visual story-telling formats has allowed me to create illustrations and animations. My ultimate goal is to combine my digital art skills and my background in wildlife conservation to create educational media promoting environmental awareness and positive social change.
