I'm a designer currently residing in Jackson Hole, WY. In May 2012, I received a degree in Media Arts, Integrated Digital Media from the University of Montana in Missoula.
While my degree focused mostly on motion design and animation, I also have experience working as a web and graphic designer both at the university and professional levels.
So go on, read more about me, view my work below, and contact me. I'd love to learn more about you and the freelance work you'd love for me to do.
I'll reply to your email inquiry as soon as I can.
This was a digital art installation presented for the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Missoula, Montana. It was a collaboration between my fellow University of Montana Media Arts students Lindy Jones, Sari Jones, Preston Schulz, Chelsey Von Ehrenkrook, and myself (aka "The Dream Team").

The animation is 10 1/2 minutes long, but feel free to scrub through it! Some of the pizzaz of the original color was lost in the compression. :(
The spotlights on the wall behind the boxes and on the giant paper lanterns weren't up yet, so the video is dark, less colorful and doesn't look like the finished product. :(
Category: Digital Art Installation / Motion Design / Graphic Design
Created Using: Illustrator, After Effects, LED spotlights & lightstrips, paper lanterns, boxes, duct tape, paper, TVs, projectors
Our goal for The Bad Contraption was to create a space in which people could get lost; a surreal, topsy-turvy world.
It consisted of two animations projected onto the walls, large stacks of boxes with patterns taped onto them stacked around the room, colored LED lightstrips and spotlights, huge hanging paper lanterns, five televisions which also showed the animations, and piles upon piles of small pink and white boxes viewers could interact and play with. It was held at the Badlander Bar.
