ENSONO MIGRATING TO CLOUD

Stop Motion

How do you take a complicated idea and make it fun? Tell it with stop motion! My talented colleague, David Wall, gets all the credit for the animating, but I lent a hand (literally) during the whole production process to create this fun explainer.

CAREERBUILDER DEMOS

Always Lending a Hand

From scripting to production, I was fully hands-on for every part of this project (literally.) First, I worked with CareerBuilder to re-write and fine tune their script. Next, I painted the backdrop to match their branding and propped out the set. Plus, on production day, my hands made their small screen debut, as I served as the hand model in these demos.

BEAR MATTRESS

Jack of All Trades

As a producer, I definitely consider myself a jack of all trades, master of none. Throw me in as your casting director, wardrobe stylist, prop stylist, craft service...you name it. I'll guarantee my client loves the end result.

SMOKEBALL

Perfect Execution

I put my design chops to work creating this set for Smokeball. We shot this in one day with a crew of four in our client's conference room. I propped it out to make the room go from a messy law firm to a clean, minimal one.

One of Chicago's busiest holiday destinations, the Christkindlmarket, offered a new experience: dining at the Stammtisch. We coordinated with German American Events to be there during prime time to get real testimonials from attendees.

My journalism degree comes in handy during projects like this one, where I got to interview veterans about their impact serving our country, both in uniform and while working for the pharmaceutical company Fresenius Kabi.

One of seven vignettes created for Whirlpool as they release new colors for KitchenAid appliances. Working with a fantastic art team, I coordinated all the logistics to evoke the emotion behind each color.
