I am a Motion Graphics alumni at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Many of my friends and family ask what motion graphics entails. To me, motion graphics is a form of visual communication using design, animation and visual effects. My goal is to use motion graphics to help teach people philosophy. I have learned discipline by competing in gymnastics for ten years. Two of those years were spent training at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center. Besides gymnastics, snowboarding and rock climbing are adrenaline pumping hobbies of mine. Hiking is a great way for me to get outside and enjoy nature. I am a self taught guitar and bass player and I love music with a good bass line. My biggest artistic passion is photography and cinematography. I can spend every day shooting photos and video and be completely happy. I have fun generating content.
