Featured Projects

Check out some of my work. Imagine what we could make together!

Google Devfest 2022 for MousePack

AR effects for Instagram are fun to make, fun to share, and fun to use. They can add flare to any event, product, or marketing. This effect promotes Google Devfest 2022 with some silly interactions and animations. Simple is effective!

The project features head tracking, hand tracking, 2D animations, and customized assets.

Toolkit: Spark AR, Adobe Illustrator

Snapchat x HBO: House of the Dragon for MousePack

Location-based AR is just about the coolest! You can anchor experiences to geographical locations and tailor those experiences to the community. This effect at Pier 16 in New York promotes HBO's House of the Dragon series. The dragon launches into the air, swoops down, and breathes fire!

The project features location tracking, 3D animation, and visual effects for fire.

Toolkit: Lens Studio, Blender, JavaScript

Exploding Skateboard Diagram

Exploding diagrams show how things assemble. They explain technology, assist with repairs, and more. Typically, on paper, they fall flat! In 3D, they come to life and allow the user to understand the components much better!

The project features hand tracking, 3D animation, and custom UI elements.

Toolkit: Spark AR, Blender

Candy Corn Catch

AR games can be challenging and hilarious. Sometimes you're a huge candy corn catching other smaller candy corns. This is one of those times! Multiple short levels make this casual arcade game a sweet time! See what I did there? Received over 500k plays in the first month!

The project features hand tracking, 3D modeling, custom UI elements, JavaScript, and sound design.

Toolkit: Lens Studio, Blender, JavaScript, Adobe Illustrator
