Learn a little bit about me
and what I can do for you!
All my life, I’ve been a digital artist. At ten years old I started experimenting with media production and carried that passion into adulthood. I focused on video production and decided to pursue an associate’s degree in Video and 3D Design at Pittsburgh Technical Institute (now known as Pittsburgh Technical College.)
It’s my dream to own and operate an entertainment studio one day. I have been chasing this dream since my early experimentation days. Of course, there’s no better way to understand this dream without gaining real experience. My goal in the present is to spend my days working with established teams to add modern and original flair to their projects. In doing that, I get to explore my ultimate passion: inspiring and educating others about the magic of video production. If there’s something to learn, I want to learn it. If there’s something I can teach, I want to teach it.
Outside of producing media, I enjoy playing a variety of video games on the weekends. If i’m not at home brushing up on my cooking skills, you’ll find me scouring vinyl record aisles in department stores. Being a musician, I also take time to practice the piano, the guitar and singing!

Professionally and as a hobby, I…
Animate and design 2D and 3D Graphics with an understanding of color and design principles.
Manipulate and composite footage to enhance, repair, and chroma-key full scenes.
Tell engaging visual stories by combining and refining footage and audio.
Creatively and functionally rig lights and capture footage using advanced photographic concepts.
Produce sounds and compose music to score productions, video games, and animations.
Sculpt and develop 3D models for motion graphics and still renders.
Every trade has them. Here are mine:
After Effects and Premiere Pro for motion graphics and video editing.
Photoshop, Lightroom, and Illustrator: for photo manipulation and graphic illustration.
Audition for audio enhancements, mixing, and mastering.
Element 3D is a plug-in for Adobe After Effects created by Video Copilot, and it’s used for 3D motion graphics and animation.
Blender is free open-source 3D modeling software, and it’s what I use to develop custom 3D models.
For particle simulations and volumetric grid-shapes, Trapcode Particular and Trapcode Form come in handy. These are my favorite tools to apply in 3D motion graphics. Visual Effects are possible with these tools as well.
The majority of my music, sound effects, and scoring is composed and produced using FL Studio. I’ll combine this with the power of Adobe Audition during the mixing and mastering phases.
Microsoft Excel is my sidekick in organizing and keeping track of which shots need visual effects or any post work. Word and PowerPoint are excellent script writing and story boarding tools. Although these are common tools, organization is invaluable in video production.
