art direction

I enjoy being part of team that clicks together and combines skills to create something greater than the singular talent. I have been part of several teams offering up compositions and directional sketches to push a concept forward. Andres Guzman and myself helped create the ID for the 2014 KCA under the direction of CC Bursell.

To convey a mood and communicate the tone of a property with type can be challenging yet rewarding. I have had the luxury of creating title type for several indie films and large television productions. Above: The Ice Storm Title Card.

I map out spots and ads with storyboards when there is a need drive tune-in or introducing a property that requires tags, titles + endpages. Above: Nickelodeon's TMNT under the Creative Direction of Dan Dickson.
