Motion Graphics and Animation
In my career I have often had to make small animations for web, fly in text for video, and other graphic movements. This eventually led me to designing illustrations, and then bringing them to life. I feel like my best work is around designing animations for music I create. You can see a few of those on the Current Compositions page, as well as on this page.
You can also check out my YouTube channel for original videos, animations, and music. Below are a few examples.
This animation is a promo on the DesignsW website.

This animation is a series of illustrations brought to life, to accompany an original music composition. It portrays a journey from darkness to light.
View "Uncertain" animation
This video explores the idea that the universe is fundamentally probabilistic. Each decision we make creates the world in which we live. We have every option, so our choice at each moment is important. New Mexico is a great place to consider the possibilities! I hope you find this to be an interesting visual experience while listening to this instrumental!
A Moon in the Sky

There was a beautiful moon outside my window one evening. I decided to illustrate, animate, and create some sound for it! I originally designed this one to play on Instagram.
Tate Modern Exhibit
View "Tate Modern Exhibit" animation
This illustration/animation/sound was designed to play on Instagram and is inspired by my last visit to the Tate Modern in London before the pandemic. The visit was to view an exhibit by Olafur Eliasson, which inspired me to create this animation and sound. The animation is fairly simple, but evokes a nice memory of entering this exhibit with flashing lights and sound when stepping out of the elevator on to the second floor of the Tate Modern.
