 Hi, everyone. Nice to meet you. I have 8 years of experience in Motion Graphics and illustration. I love to create logos, icons, editorial illustrations, Giphy, AR mask design, and original artwork for animation. I have worked with Marvel Entertainment, ABC Television Group, New York Post, CNBC, and CBS Interactive. I met great teams and people in the companies. Working with good people is an invaluable thing in my life. 

 I was an in-house illustrator in a book publishing company after finishing my undergrad in Canada. After 2 years of working, I wanted to have more dynamic elements in my artworks such as motion and sound for better storytelling. This is why I decided to learn more about motion graphics by getting an MFA in Computer Arts at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. This led me to new chances to work on awesome projects with talented professionals. My illustration skillset also helped me to stand out more on various projects. 

 After 6 years of working and studying in Manhattan, I moved to San Francisco in late 2018 for my new job hoping to learn more about design and technology related to human behavior. That was a big move for me from East Coast to West Coast leaving behind my family and friends. But, also excited to see all the passionate people in the tech industry.  I learned a lot and grow a lot through new challenges in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. My curiosity about future technology and human-centered design (UX/UI/AR/VR) leads me to the next level.
