I've been concepting and creating a wide range of graphics and animations for clients like the Baltimore Orioles, Washington Nationals, Baltimore Ravens, Iron Mountain, etc, as well as news and network packages for NBC, FOX, ABC, CBS and CW. I'm a creative by heart and honestly don't think I could enjoy working in an industry any more than I already do. I've been designing for television in some way, shape or form for over 10 years and don't see that shifting anytime soon. I work In Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema 4D, and I'm well versed in most plugins for these programs. I use them together to create engaging graphics and animations for whatever marketing solutions are needed.
