I'm an editor and motion designer who has recently relocated to New York to continue my career in post production. If you have a minute, please head to and let me know what you think. Any advice, suggestions, or job offers are welcome. I'm curious to know what level I am at as well (junior, assistant, senior?).

Thank you in advance for your time,
