ART DIRECTOR | ANIMATOR
I grew up in a small Canadian town of 2300 people and just one yellow pedestrian light. I have since traveled the world, lived in multiple countries, learned two languages (Thai and Lao), filmed and flown drones around the world, led as creative director of the BYU AdLab, and stumbled into art direction.
I say "stumbled" because I'm not a traditional art director. Never took a design class. Completely self-taught. I was more of a content creator, video editor, and figure-outer. But ultimately, I just want to make cool and smart stuff; so art direction allows me to be a Swiss Army knife and dive into whatever art form, technology, or tool fits the idea best.
FILM + ANIMATION + TECH = ME 🤘🏼
