PSA: Invisible Toxic Paint

Mixed-Media, 2020

:10-:30 & 3:06-3:26

I love visualizing data and simplifying complex concepts through clear and engaging visuals, especially when I get to combine my first love (stop motion) with my digital skills. 

When Covid hit, I was living with my mom, who has COPD, in Florida. I initially planned a rainbow of skin tones but, feeling rushed after production took longer than I’d hoped, I skipped the final step. While completing it felt like a physical achievement, I regret not taking the time to be inclusive, and will not do that again. Otherwise, I think it works.

Mixed-Media, 2009

1:25-2:42 & 3:17-3:45

When I heard my friends’ band’s new album, I imagined them as marionettes, so I decided to make a music video. Despite having no puppetry experience, once I took myself and the project less seriously, the imperfect puppets worked perfectly. I never let inexperience stop me from using the right medium for a project; I just learn it. The band loved it, and it became the official video for the song. It remains one of my most fun projects.


Word Anims

2023-2024

Originally for my client facing website ramboxcreative.com, and combining my love for language with motion, this is an ongoing series. They are relatively quick and will offer me a perfect opportunity to combine media in various ways and improve. Learning is joy for me, and I strive to do it constantly. 


Nature Photos

Photography, 2020-2024 

I worship nature, especially micro views, and I’ve welded a rig that allows me to use my lighting skills from my 3D lighting & compositing career IRL. I had deeply missed flexing that muscle. Now, I’m exploring and enjoying this new tool, hoping to perfect and perhaps eventually manufacture and sell it.
