My main background is in live-action filmmaking. For the last couple years I hit a bit of a block with making videos. I was frustrated by the limitations of shoe-string budgets. I was frustrated at myself because of silly expectations of "making it " and comparing myself to other people.

It took a couple years of just trying to embrace stability before I even wanted to make anything again. In 2014 I got a job as a motion graphic designer at a social media ad agency where the deadlines forced me to learn a lot of things I thought I could never learn. I started these videos as an outlet to just go nuts after hours with new techniques and to escape to other worlds 15 seconds at a time. Now it's a weekly commitment. And it's fun.
