Dollar General Package by Fivestone Studios

Fivestone recently updated their portfolio with a mega cool project that I was lucky to be a part of this summer. We designed a fully immersive visual/audio experience for a huge football-themed Dollar General conference held at the Music City Event Center in Nashville, TN. I helped animate the transitions in between speakers' names (one of them being Peyton Manning)! Check it out:

Animated Flower Titles by ChromaCartel

One of the projects I got to design on my own this summer was a downloadable template project file for ten animated title cards featuring lots of watercolor-style illustrations of flowers and fruits that draw on as the words appear. The project went live on VideoHive this week, and it was selected as the new Featured file (click here to see for yourself)!

Wish You Were Here

With a break between projects at my internship last week, I had some time to invest in a little personal exploration of the liquid motion technique. This GIF took about 12 hours to animate frame-by-frame in Photoshop, and it's dedicated to my older brother who passed away while I was on vacation as a child.


The best $4 I've ever spent, probably

Last weekend I bought an umbrella hat... and now I don't mind rainy days so much anymore.

I also started a gallery of all my little illustrations, which you can take a look at here :)


Hello from my new workplace, Fivestone Studios! This has been such a fun experience for my last summer of pre-adulthood. The studio is in Nashville, TN and I'm loving every second of it!

Check out this blog post introducing me and the other interns. PS: Follow @fivestonestudios on social media for updates like the little animation I made for our Instagram account today!
