At the VCU Brandcenter, I personally developed a class teaching Cinema 4D to students in the Experience Design (XD) track focusing on product design and innovation. This includes all aspects of the curriculum (assignment design, learning paths, mentoring/inspiration) and 3D graphics (modeling, texturing, lighting, and rendering). Starting in 2019 I began including After Effects to XD and Art Direction learning paths. To facilitate this learning I’ve employed screen-capture video tutorial series’, hosted on Teachable.com.

As an Art Director at Metro Productions I work with clients to develop a clear message for their project and provide visual directions based on their feedback. As Motion Designer I employ 2D or 3D animation techniques based on what’s needed to tell the client’s story, either in 3D environments, full-screen animation or graphical video overlays. As Senior Motion Designer, I work with business development associates to craft accurate budgets and timelines for clients’ story needs, as well as craft the visual identity of the company.
