Lettering Animation

I am on a mission to discover the depths of lettering animation. Hand lettering is such an expressive form of communication and I love giving it an extra infusion of life with motion.

In the summer, I joined the Mograph Mentor team as Product Director. I'm working remotely several hours a week and helping out with, well, product direction as well as communication and on-boarding with students.

What activities am I doing?

My wife and I traveled Europe on the weekends while we lived in London for 3 months this Spring!

We lived the digital nomad life and visiting friends and family in North Carolina for June and July. 

In August we road tripped ourselves and all our stuff across the U.S. to our new home in Tempe, AZ! Now we're exploring the desert and experiencing what it feels like to live in an oven.

I've been getting back into skateboarding and LOVING it again.
