I am a Visual Effects Artist finishing up my studies at Flashpoint, the Academy of Media Arts and Sciences in Chicago, IL (completion: June 2010). My main focus is in compositing in After Effects, producing and digital production work.  I am planning to move back to the Bay Area, CA in the Summer of 2010 but would love to hear about any available employment opportunities.  Thank you for your consideration.


Reality and its various representations.  Art and design.  Music and culture.  Amazing stories.
