Location: Brooklyn, NY.
Duration: Since 2010.
Education: BFA in graphic design from Pratt Institute.
Big break: Working as a motion designer/animator with Nickelodeon’s on-air design team right out of school. This amazing learning opportunity led to animation becoming a large part of my work.
Artistic influences: Abstract painting and its connection to the beginning of graphic design and commercial art, Wassily Kandinsky’s paintings and writing on the power of color and the abstract visual form; Stuart Davis, Yaacov Agam, Sol Lewitt and minimal/conceptual art; Brian Eno’s approach to collaboration and building out an idea in a non-linear way; Arthur Ganson’s elaborate moving sculptures; and Joshua Davis’s generative art.
Work environment: New York City is like a physical manifestation of the Internet, in the sense that both are a center of global cultural influence but are also full of subcultures and interesting people.
Approach: There’s an accessible weirdness to my personal work, and it resonates with like-minded clients who see the potential for collaboration.
Aspirations: I’m working on expanding into kinetic sculpture, large-scale painting, programmatic interactive digital art and wherever else the rabbit hole leads me to.
