I am an independent, experimental animator. I use associative thinking, metaphor, sound, and the poetry of color, mark-making, and texture as my tools. For me, animation is a form of active and reflective engagement that transforms thought and emotion into concrete objects. I have worked as an animator, director, illustrator, author, and have taught animation at numerous institutions. I am currently teaching animation at Rhode Island School of Design, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and Brown University.
