Harnessing the research and design skills I developed earning my Master of Fine Art in Visual Communication Design & Cinematic Arts, along with the experience I gained developing my own classes as a Professor of Design (F2F, Hybrid, and Virtual), I strive to lead learners to an a-ha moment.
My primary goals are to strengthen engagement by incorporating stunning visuals, scaffolded lessons, and – quite often – a bit of humor!
I specialize in the creation of animated elements, original illustrations, and encourage and support strategic video-making.
My other interests include being active in the outdoors, dogs, and the honor presenting my animated shorts in film festivals worldwide!
