I am a senior-level content marketing professional and plain-language advocate with a knack for turning complex technical concepts into ideas everyone can understand.
Video & Animation
From talking heads to promotional videos to animated explainers and even an animated series, I have shot and edited plenty of video. It's always a fun challenge to turn complicated subject matter into engaging content, and always satisfying when it comes out well.
