I create explanimations to help organizations educate their audience and make a positive impact.
My Story

Growing up in the health-conscious, fitness-fanatic culture of Boulder, Colorado, I developed an interest in how the human body works from a young age. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Integrative Physiology from the University of Colorado, Boulder because I found it fascinating. But, I soon realized the healthcare path I was on wasn’t quite the direction I wanted to go.

I’ve always been a creative person and through a minor in Technology, Arts & Media, I found a passion for creating motion graphic animations.

Both of my parents are teachers and I too found I love the challenge of communicating complex information in a simple, easy to understand way. Animation has allowed me to combine my interests and love for learning with my creative side.

I earned a master’s degree in Creative Technology and Design, also from CU Boulder. I’m currently working at DaVita to create educational animations for patients with kidney disease. I love creating explanimations so much that I do so in my free time too. If you have a need for an explanimation, please contact me.

Fun Fact

Since the second grade, I've been an avid jump roper. I competed at the national and international level for 13 years, performed at CU and Nuggets basketball half-times and Jump Rope for Heart demos, and taught numerous workshops and before/after school classes at elementary schools. I am the founder and creator of Skipping Skills, an instructional jump rope mobile application which strives to promote fitness, healthy lifestyles, and teamwork among aspiring athletes.
