I was born in Nashville, TN, and relocated to the Northeast to attend Hampshire College. During my senior year at at Hampshire I was introduced to the (now defunct) internet art community dump.fm: a real-time image sharing chatroom frequented by Internet and New Media artists. It was through dump that I first learned how to make animated gifs, first on GIMP, then Photoshop, and then eventually After Effects.
After graduating from Hampshire, I worked as a campaign organizer and social media coordinator for the startup non-profit Fight for the Future. I transitioned to motion graphics design full-time in 2013, and have since worked for Cosmopolitan Magazine, Esquire, Giphy, and Electric Objects.
I've also made a lot of art both for myself and for/with other artists. In 2011 I became one of the members of the Tight Artist Net Gang, which submitted work to group shows in Florida, England, and Vermont. In 2012 I created the 5 star page with Mary Rachel Kostreva for Brian Droitcour's Fifteen Stars at The New Museum.
