Growing up, storytelling was our love language. My mom filled our house with little figurines, from mice with oversized pencils to frogs doing yoga. Together we’d come up with backstories, like how the frogs had hard jobs as accountants, so during their breaks they’d stretch to prevent hunched backs. We’d laugh, get up, stretch a little, then see who could come up with an even more absurd story. Looking back now, that's when my love for creating narratives began. Today, motion design lets me share my stories that make people, for a moment in their day, slow down, smile, maybe even laugh, and leave feeling a little happier.
