Motion graphics design, animation, video production, and music composition.

John believes that story is the driving force of production. Dress it up any number of different ways, but getting the message across so that it moves, touches, or inspires the viewer is the name of the game.

With a background in graphic design, John enjoys taking a multi-disciplinary approach to video and animation and his musical education provides a lyrical expression to his visual work. His experience has provided the ability to take a project from concept through completion when necessary and he also enjoys collaborating in a team environment.
