I am always tinkering and exploring and bringing new ideas to life no matter what they may be so you never know what you see in this section. There is a new reel in the works and some of the content here may change.

SWATCH
Recreating the Faces of Yesteryear
One of my passions is nostalgia. I like designing for eras and recreating things that are difficult to find. Here are some Swatch Watch Faces I immediately gravitated to. These were created in Adobe Illustrator.
RUN STUDIOS
Amazon Style Animation
I was hired to create this animated visual explainer with no sound to show how the Amazon Style purchase path works using a QR code and a mobile device. The initial direction referenced a live-action video, and a few boards. I also created all the flat-lay illustrations.
NFT PROJECT
Stadium Bears
I found some avenues of success with NFTs after being contacted by a private group to make some NFT bears. Unfortunately, the group lost funding but the bears lived on.
ALEX BALL
Electromotive: The Story of ARP Instruments
This was completed in 2020 for Alex Ball. Alex is a tremendous musician and YouTube documentary director who puts together videos and reviews of musical history–particularly synthesizers. I connected with Alex and asked if he needed motion graphics to support his work. It happened that he did. So I called up a peer and we made these titles and credits for Alex.

The art direction is a nostalgic nod to the 70s with a post-processed VHS look combined with era-specific sound bites. For the end credits I wanted to have it look like it was shot on the ARP instruments and did some magic to achieve that.
DOC-LIFE FILMS
Chasing Gravity
For this 2018 documentary, I provided several concepts for intro title treatments, lower thirds, still photography treatments, and some 2D-3D animation inserts for Ignite Channel and DocLife Films.
Included below are some of my submissions and process shots. You can view more here
VOSSLER MEDIA
Mission Control Digital Short
This comedic short film was an internal Vossler team production completed in 2020. I was invited to provide VFX and Motion Design to create the intro advertisement of the Big Sipper and was also tasked to create the animation for the Earth explosion and consult on the UI talking mouth "Monica". These scenes were needed to introduce the joke that leads the narrative of the story.
This project is listed on IMDB and took home several awards from festival submissions–including best VFX.
