DesignMotionPhotoEnthusiastic home chef

My design journey began over a decade ago as a wedding photographer and videographer. I continue to work professionally as a freelance photographer specializing in commercial product and food photography. Along the way I found myself branching out into design work, which ultimately led me to pursue a career in design. In 2021 I completed my education at the Seattle Central Creative Academy with an Associates of Applied Science in Graphic Design.

Most recently my focus has been on refining my skills in motion graphics and design. Motion has given me the unique opportunity to combine a background in videography and photography with graphic design. As I continue to develop and learn, I hope to expand into the world of 3D motion design.

In addition to hundreds of amazing newlyweds, over the years I have been fortunate to work for numerous clients including Fran's Chocolates, Bittyfish Sushi, Elemental Pizza, A'PEXi USA, and Intec Racing.
