Motion Reel

Animation Sample

Here are some examples of character animation – with a little Cha Cha footwork, followed by an armless parkour jumper.  Next up, a mission statement for a company’s future is communicated with motion design. For a change of platform, you will see an iPad app capture of tooth decay, which happens after the player makes a mistake in the game. And throughout the video, a silhouetted dancer moves in front of a projection as an example of my interactive art projects, where I can’t help but collaborate with dancers and technologists.

For a comprehensive breakdown, hop over to the HD version.

Motion Design for National Food Group

Lyric Inc needed their storyboards to come to life, and called me. I designed the motion (not the illustrations) for this uplifting corporate mission statement for National Food Group.

Artifact III: Study on Antispace

Inspired by the sensual movements of the body, the sculpture was created by studying the negative space of a dancer.

Eroding Matter and Memory

“Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.” – Proust

This piece explores the plasticity of memory and the process of revisiting memories. Shown at Soil Artist-Run gallery in Pioneer Seattle, for the month of March 2014. Curated by Interstitial Theater, the show explored the boundaries that define video art and dance performance work.
