I was contacted to create a background animation for the main stage at the TED 2017 Conference in Vancouver. The session I worked on was called "Bugs & Bodies." It's about all things bugs, microbes, death rays that kill bacteria (!) and genetics.
I created this long background to set the stage for talks by Wang Jun, Anne Madden, Levon Biss, Mehdi Ordikhani-Seyedlar, Elizabeth Blackburn and more.

In 2018, Mailchimp rebranded with a new look to expanded beyond email and become a leading marketing platform for small businesses. This included a new logo, color palette, illustrations, photography and animation. As the Motion Design Manger at Mailchimp, I guided the look and feel for our new brands animation style which included creating original animation (including the new logo!) as well as providing art direction to freelancers and studios that helped make this launch possible.
I designed this flyer for the New York based bi-monthly animation challenge Loopdeloop. The theme for this round was SISTERS and was a collaboration with WANDAA (Women and Animation Australia Project), whose goal is to raise the profile of female animators.
Punanimation is a private group for women, trans or non-binary animators started by Bee Grandinettio , Hedvig Ahlberg and Linn Fritz . It's inspiring, supportive and helpful. So proud to be in this community of talented ladies.
I made this little gif for the start of the directory this here. Check out the full list of animators here:
To help promote Mailchimp’s new postcards feature, a few designers got together and made a game in the style of paperboy. This was a passion project that started small and grew into something great. We even got a cabinet in the office!
I handled the animation for the game and worked some talented coworkers

In Summer 2010, I created a logo and identity for Hyperallergic, a forum for serious, playful and radical thinking about art in the world today. It combines the best of art blog and magazine culture by focusing on publishing quality and engaging writing and images from informed and provocative perspectives.
You may have heard of MailChimp's Coffee Hour before. We invite creative, interesting, thought-provoking, and downright weird people to come and teach us something new. The purpose of Coffee Hour is to challenge and inspire MailChimp employees.
The design team started making posters to annouce the speaker of the week as well as contribute to the hype. These events were the perfect place to experiment with design ideas.

9 Squares is a collaborative animation project organized by Al Boardman, Skip Dolphin Hursh, and David Stansfield. I was able to take part in round 24 of this project with a handful of super talented artists. This round was also special because it was premiered at See No Evil

I became interested in projection art as a way to experiment with animation and video as well as break away from the computer for a bit. Atlanta has a thriving scene of talented artist, but rarely have spaces to meet up outside of working environments.
The first event I worked on was Screen, which was a projection show featuring non-commercial work from local artists. Also teamed up with the folks the run Off The Air to put together Earth . Artists were encouraged to submit any work representative of, earth. From celebrations of nature, to climate change, to commentaries on its inhabitants and life on the planet itself, all interpretations are welcome.
Role: Motion Designer
Over a period of 12 days, I challenged myself to create a short animation every day. The idea was meant to explore new visual styles and techniques within Cinema 4D and After Effects.
