Animation &

Video Editing

I have been editing videos since 2012. I first used a no-name third-party editor, then moved on to Magix Vegas (formerly Sony Vegas.)


After years of plugging along in Vegas, I finally switched to Premiere and After Effects when I was able to purchase my own Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, and I still use both of them to this day.


Below you will find examples of my animation and video editing abilities from when I was in college.

Pokémon Infographic

This was an animated infographic that I put together in After Effects.  I created most of the images in Photoshop and imported the graphics into the final video to be animated.  I am responsible for all non-musical elements of this video, including storyboards, script, images, graphics, animations, and narration.

Dog Transforms Into An Apple

This is a transformation animation I drew and animated by hand in Adobe Animate.

DesignBox Animated Logo Intro

This is an animation I created for a YouTube channel I created called DesignBox. I used a mix of Photoshop, Premiere, and After Effects to create this simple intro of the DesignBox logo to use in the beginnings of videos.

Discovery Channel Ident Mock-Up

This is a TV channel ident I created in After Effects for an assignment at AI.  All stock videos and photos came from StoryBlocks and all music and sound effects came from AudioBlocks.  Discovery Channel is owned by Discovery.  This video was created for educational purposes only.

TV Channel Watermarks

These are mock-up animated watermarks for fake TV channels for an assignment. These were all created in Adobe After Effects.

The Xbox Controller You Can't Buy In Stores

This is an unboxing video I made for my personal YouTube channel, though I feel the cinematography and editing on display in the first minute and last minute is quite professional. I filmed this entire video on my Google Pixel 3 using a pro camera app as well as Google's built-in slow motion feature. The video itself was edited in Premiere. The music is courtesy of YouTube's stock audio library.

How Animal Crossing Discourages Cheating

This is a game-design focused video based around Animal Crossing and how Nintendo discourages players from playing the game in a way that they did not intend. This video showcases not only my video editing, but also my writing, narration, and my ability to analyze and discuss game design decisions. Music used is a combination of YouTube's audio library and the Animal Crossing soundtrack.
