my Career so far...
I graduated with an Art Studio degree from George Mason in 2003. For nine years I designed and animated commercials for television at various design shops, agencies and broadcast networks in the New York area. After moving to San Francisco in 2012 I spent almost three years at Square as a motion graphics designer on their video team doing short form animations and compositing for live action commercials. Since 2015 I've been an experience designer at Airbnb focused on bringing motion and animation to the company's web and native platforms.
