About 

I am an Architectural Designer and CG Artist/Animator residing in NYC. My work has spanned many forms of media and disciplines with the goal of creating good design through the use of cutting edge technologies. My professional work has connected me with people in multiple fields ranging from architectural & product design, fabrication, graphic & branding design, and animation & visualization.

I am proficient with multiple software platforms ranging from architectural design & drafting, to computer visualization/animation & video game design, and video editing, special effects & compositing.

I strive to find a collaborative work environments where my design and technology skills can be tested & challenged to deliver complex products and solutions.
