Web Developer, 3D Generalist and Motion Graphic Artist


new york, United States


I have been freelancing web development, 3d modeling, and motion graphics for over seven years. For five years I worked for a product development company creating web tools, animations and 3D models for concept testing. My freelance and current employment have always required an intense amount of creative development, ideation, communication and time management. While freelancing I keep an open dialog with my clients; updating them on project progress, new ideas and improvements if they pop up mid project, and making sure they get what they want and expect at every step. In the past I have built websites from ... moredesign ideation to launch, created storyboards and motion graphic pieces for tv intros and presentations and have modeled and animated characters. I wear several hats to get projects completed. From modeling, texturing, animating and rendering a logo or character to designing and building a website from start to finish, while also finding the client hosting and securing a domain name. I am extremely ambitions and self motivated. Before owning my own company I was hired as a 3D generalist for a product development company. I successfully convinced the company owner to create a motion graphics position specifically for me. Offering motion graphic pieces increased client interest in the company, as did several web tools I built to improve data mining and streamline internal processes. I was the only person in the company who did web development, 3d modeling and motion graphics. For the four years I was employed at this company part of my animation duties included: creating detailed storyboards based on feedback from several people, animating while receiving critiques and creating all visual elements on short deadlines. Being the only person who modeled, my position entailed: modeling, texturing, staging, lighting and rendering all objects to a high degree of realism. Being the only person who did web development my duties included: coming up with solutions to problems that can be solved through web tools, designing and coding web tools, making sure web programs have no bugs, training coworkers on how to use web tools and updating the company website when necessary. The bulk of my work is created with After Effects and Maya, but I use Flash, Photoshop, and Illustrator almost daily. Web languages I know are HTML, XML, CSS, SASS, Jquery, PHP, MySQL, Actionscript 2/3 and I am a Wordpress Expert. You may be thinking, "What can you do for me?" I have a large skill set, but if I need to learn something new, I will. I work quickly and efficiently, while trying to find the best solution for your web and visual needs. All my projects are completed with the highest technical and design skills. I graduated with a BFA in Animation and Game Design, but I have an AAS in Visual Arts so I know about layout, color and design. Lastly, I meet my deadlines and complete what I start. less

    I need a PHP Motion theme customized
    The developer was very talented in meeting my request and is a very hard worker. Her skill level is at a premium level and she is collaborative with both ideation and talented with the technical implementation. I highly recommend this developer for those who want a thorough, efficient, and professional product. She has done surprisingly well with my abstract project, although I recommend future clients to be well defined in their aims; as it is the best used of the developers skills and clients resources. Also, the developer was diligent about beginning the project immediately, had flexibility to work as much or as little as my periodic budget dictated, and was patient on all fronts. It was a refreshing pleasure to work with this developer, and we will definitely collaborate in the future.
