I'm an artist who specializes in narrative and sequential art... basically, I thrive on drawing ideas all the way out. Advertising, film, interactive and experiential media, and occasionally animation. My BFA is in Directing, so I understand composition and creating shots that are interesting and actually shootable.

Sequences meant to illustrate the various storyboarding styles and previsualizations I'm capable of rendering for different kinds of media.

...But it kind of just turned into a place where I put my animated shorts.

Brief overview of styled boards done for various brands. From sketch to fully rendered.

"Clarice" CBS - Promo

This was a promo I worked on for CBS, with Producer Alex Kurtzman and

Director Chris Byrne; and

which premiered during the Super Bowl.

A lot was dependent on weather, and it must not have cooperated.

The final version didn't resemble this at all, but that's the biz, I guess lol.

So I cut this together because I enjoyed how it came out.
