I'm a creative designer working in graphic design, motion graphics and video editing with a special focus on projects that support mission driven organizations and causes.
CREATIVITY FOR A CAUSE
I was raised in New Orleans, by parents who worked in animal rescue and advocacy. This included adopting a farm's worth of pets. I'm talking, at any given time, approximately 8 dogs, 4 cats, 1 to 40 birds, 2 horses, iguanas, ferrets, a flying squirrel... oh, yeah, and there was that one night we had a goat over at the house... and oh so many more.
In 2003, I moved to New York City where I worked for over 17 years as an actor and 10 years a stunt performer. Living that freelance life. I was killed on Blue Bloods, murdered a guy and got arrested on Gotham, got knocked out by Daredevil, rescued by Spiderman, shaved my head and ran around stage half-naked shouting Shakespeare and, well... once again, so many more stories to tell.
But when I eventually adopted pets of my own, something started to change. The empathy and responsibility I felt towards them led me to volunteer for local animal rescues. This eventually led to a full time role in the animal care field. And that opened the door to full time positions in the nonprofit field, where I've now worked for over 5 years.
Along the way, my creative life shifted from performing into graphic design, motion graphics and video editing.
I'm here for the nonprofit... and the nonsense.
My experience in the entertainment industry and performing is baked into my bones, so there's always room to be silly, tell stories that make people laugh and have a good time, or just drop a fresh meme.
And my experience in the nonprofit field has made me value creating content that speaks to the unique voice and mission of an organization or cause while sensitively honoring the needs and experience of a community.
