About Me


 

 

 

I am an animator / multi-media developer who graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia back in 2007. I have since built my skill set at several places in Philadelphia and New York where I was freelancing doing work on a new animation pilot. When I am not at work, I am always still working on something whether it is volunteering locally, or seeking freelance work to help sharpen my skills.

I currently work creating the motion graphics for all the digital displays in the three offices of Amerihealth Administrators in Philly. I have been in charge of designing digital templates, rebranding older videos and creating new and exciting content for the company’s displays and the new website.

 

 

EXPERIENCE

7.2014 – PRESENT
AMERIHEALTH ADMINISTRATORS, PHILADELPHIA, PA
Motion Graphics Designer

I handle asset creation for all the digital signage in our office (over 19 in the new office, and over 30 in the previous space). I create videos and templates for the players as well as generating videos for the websites for both the AmeriHealth Administrators and Independence Administrators brands. I am in charge of writing/developing scripts for a new member education series on Health Care as well as obtaining voice tracks and other audio, and managing the rollout of the videos.

I help our lead designer in the creation and maintenance of external marketing collateral (flyers, brochures, presentations), created videos and other materials for Associate Communications for town halls, meetings, presentations, newsletters. I am in charge of photography for events, and supply back-up/additional support for the Digital Marketing Coordinator in both programming/maintaining the digital signs, designing the imagery for the newsroom blogs, and making requests for edits to the websites in both lines of business.

During AmeriHealth Administrators’ move to 1900 Market St, I was on the team of associates that helped transition everyone over. I was responsible for taking and getting answers to questions over several departments, and well as helping to plan and participate in company events throughout the build up. I also aided in creating the art that is used in the office, as well as planning the signage for the entryways to the office building.
