Welcome!

Hello, World.

I’m a screenwriter, interactive producer, motion graphics artist, and video editor specializing in educational and documentary media.  I’ve had the great pleasure of creating media for the Smithsonian Institution, The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, and Parks Canada, among others.  My freelance work has given me a chance to explore entirely new styles and tones for more commercial clients.  Finally, I have been quite lucky to be able to teach motion graphics at American University, where I earned my MFA in Film & Electronic Media.

Between teaching, my full-time position, and my freelance work, I’ve had the opportunity to see productions through the full creative life-cycle. I have written creative treatments for entire museums, designed interfaces, workflow and database structures for computer interactives, written documentary scripts, researched and acquired media for archival productions, and finally seen them through the video editing and motion graphics process to completion.

I like working with clients, but I’m no stranger to spending 12 hours at a stretch making the pixels do my bidding.

I do all this because I love telling stories.  Whether it’s making sense of dense texts for the screen, or a purely visual experience, I want to tell a story.  I’ve got one or two of my own stories cooking, but I’m also keen to help you tell yours. I look forward to hearing from you!

Here’s my 2016 Demo Reel.  While it focuses on my motion graphics work, in reality, nearly all of my motion graphics begin with a traditional edit.  Regardless of the medium, story and timing are always important.
