I am a 2D & 3D motion designer, animator & illustrator surrounded by the ocean and the mountains in beautiful Squamish, British Columbia (Canada) working for the innovative design company of Arc’teryx

A 12 year expedition guiding & ski resort management careers prior to motion design helped shape my love of storytelling, desire to work with people of all walks of life and fostered my  creative side through landscape & Adventure photography.

Design and technical animation skills were developed from Vancouver Film School’s Digital Design program (2015), School of Motion and the endless quest of tutorials & podcasts from industry influencers that I admire.

I’ve been fortunate to work in post-production for Best Buy Canada, Rethink Vancouver, & many additional studios as a freelancer with clients like Nike, Shaw, Skip the Dishes, Best Buy Canada, Finning Digital, BC Tech Association, United Way of the Lower Mainland, Thompson Rivers University & Watermark Inc.

When I'm not obsessing over keyframes and design you'll find me backcountry skiing, climbing, backpacking or running somewhere deep in the heart of BC’s coastal mountains.
