Growing up in the health-conscious, fitness-fanatic culture of Boulder, Colorado, from a young age, I developed an interest in how the human body works. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Integrative Physiology and my master’s degree in Creative Technology and Design. I have a passion for motion graphics and especially enjoy the challenge of using animation to communicate complex information in a simple, easy to understand way. I’m currently working at DaVita, where I've combined my fascination with physiology with my passion for motion graphics by creating educational animations for patients with kidney disease.
