I use motion-graphics & live-action interviews to give a voice to those who need it most and to bring attention to the issues that matter.

About

My passion is telling documentary, science, museum, and humanitarian stories through the use of motion graphics and compelling cinematic interviews. My work has won multiple Vimeo Staff Picks, Webby Awards and recognized by the American Alliance of Museums. I continue to push the boundaries of what's possible to create with technology and storytelling, to create work that is both thought-provoking and visually stunning.

Featured Work

Animated Explainer: What Is the Black Hole Information Paradox?

This was a complicated concept to explain, but working with science writer Clara Moskowitz at Scientific American, we broke each idea into bite-sized visual concepts that worked with our design aesthetic. We are so proud of this piece, and hope it inspires anyone who loves the cosmos as much as we do!
