After a few years as a teaching assistant and content contributor for School of Motion, I was on staff from 2020-23 as Senior Motion Designer and then Creative Director.
In my time with SOM, I created tutorials and course content, developed marketing and social media animations for our brand, hosted and produced live streams and other events, organized multiple partnership campaigns and events with Adobe, created motion & experiential content for their ever-growing alumni community, and several other things it's even more complicated to describe. 
This is all very in line with my current status as a ...
motion designer / producer / host / creator / edu-tainment guy?
While I'm no longer on staff, I'm still working with SOM; stay tuned for more!

I've created several campaigns and events designed to present fun challenges to existing motion designers and to welcome new users to the world of motion.

Working with Adobe to help publicize an upcoming feature, the multi-part Mogrt Madness event demonstrated new prerelease media replacement template features to our private alumni community, inspiring them to create templates that were then released to the public for further creativity and experimentation. 
The #mogrtmadness hashtag on Instagram was largely co-opted by others after the event, but hey, I consider that a success!

To coincide with the long-delayed 2020 summer Olympics, we created the Mograph Games, a 10-day social media challenge/inspiration for motion designers of all skill levels. 
Each day began with a brief outlining "events" like Render Wrestling and Freestyle Compositing, along with an example created by SOM staff or teaching assistants. Participants had 24 hours to submit their own versions of the challenges, with daily and overall winners chosen via social media and on a closing ceremonies live stream.​​​​​​​#mographgames on Instagram

Working in partnership with Adobe, we assembled a 4-hour live interactive workshop event, introducing designers and other non-animators to After Effects for animating social media content. We had over 1,000 attendees join us live.
A replay of the event available here. 

In collaboration with Maxon, I hosted trainer Elly Wade as she worked through a beginner-friendly follow-along Cinema 4D demo, and were then joined by for in-depth Q&A. Over 800 viewers joined us live.
A replay of the event is available here.

I concepted this event to do one of my favorite things: showcase the talents of other motion designers! Spotlighting the talents of three of School of Motion's teaching assistants, we used case studies of their own work to highlight the various phases of bringing both client projects and personal work from initial concept to final product. Over 900 viewers joined us live.
