Overlooking Dublin Ireland after hiking the West Highland Way

 

About

Moving imagery has always been my passion. My first stop motion animations were created using Legos and G.I. Joe figures on VHS. Ever since then, I have been making things move one frame at a time. Animation, Visual Effects, and Cinematography are how I make a living, while Photography, Podcasting, Mentoring, and Travel fuel my creative tank.

I studied Visual Effects and Motion Graphics at The Art Institute International Minnesota, and started my career off at Target Corporation where I created content for Channel Red, national meetings, as well as the Corporate headquarters LED screen; a prominent fixture of the Minneapolis skyline. The experience of building a small team, render farm, and connecting with local vendors ultimately catapulted my career as a Minnesota artist.

Currently I work and live in Minneapolis where I enjoy biking, camping, photography, and Exploring international culture through food and conversation.

I try to get behind the lens as much as possible. I shoot mostly with RED, C300 MkII, Sony Fs7, F5 and F55. I’m a sucker for all image creation devices.
