    Hi, I'm Jon -- I'm a freelance motion designer and animation artist with experience taking on short and long-form commercial projects, social content, and promotional media. With a degree in graphic design + UX, I’m a self-taught 2D + 3D animator from Raleigh, NC with 8 years of experience in the creative industry. My career began as an in-house designer and animator at Big Spaceship, a creative agency in NY, where I learned the ropes of client relationships. While there, my curiosity for animated content grew and led me down a 6 year path working for two of my favorite studios, Gunner and Oddfellows. I've since started my own self-employment adventure, and am always on the lookout to work on exciting projects with cool and kind people.

    I've been doing freelance development for about 16 years and was contracting mostly with one company for the past 10 years. That work situation has slowed down and I am hoping to find more contract gigs doing either front-end or full stack development with a focus on animation. For back-end I usually build for Wordpress but am in the process of learning to integrate a backend for a headless CMS. I am all self-taught and love to learn new techniques and take on challenges as dictated by each project. I am very strong with the GSAP animation platform and love adding a unique touch to all the websites I work on. Specialties: HTML, CSS, Javascript, GSAP, Wordpress, Vue, Nuxt, jQuery, PHP, Adobe Illustrator, Figma, Creative Thinking, Motion Design, Animation
