I've always loved and admired the art form that is animation. So I made a career out of it.


I attended Pratt Institute in New York City where I got a BFA in film and animation, and discovered a love for stop motion and digital 2D animation.


So far, my career has encompassed making puppets and props for commercials, designing backgrounds and animating for preschool TV, teaching stop motion animation, producing interactive corporate training videos, and creating content for social media.


I always find time to make my own animation. Between 2013 and 2018, I produced a stop motion animated web series called Doctor Puppet. In 2019, I made a film called Sum of its Parts. Currently, I’m working on a stop motion animated horror short.


I also love indie animation and film festivals. I attend as many as I can, both as a filmmaker and attendee. Got a festival to recommend? Lemme know!
