I'm primarily a 2D (After Effects) motion designer/animator with a strong background in 3D character animation and creative coding.

Hello there! I'm so happy that you found your way here. I'm currently working remotely from Colorado, USA. I've been animating and making advergames since 2000 (back when Flash was still a thing).

I'm the monkey wrench motion designer animator. I'm equally comfortable taking on the entire project from design and illustration through animation or jumping in to fill a specific need in your project pipeline. I've always been drawn to that place where the visual and technical intersect. I've been lucky enough to work with clients all across the globe and I love bringing my clients' visions to life. Motion graphics is my specialty and I'd love to help make your project a success. Let's make something cool together!

When I'm not animating, I spend time running farther than I should, snowboarding, paddle boarding, playing Nintendo Switch, cooking, reading, and enjoying the beautiful Colorado outdoors with my husband and our amazing Australian Shepherds.

I have worked with clients and agencies large and small on some pretty cool brands including:

Sara is an insanely talented and professional coach, leader and mentor. She provided inspiration and guidance to so many individuals over the years, it's staggering. Sara was an amazing colleague and I'd love to partner with her again if given the chance!

- J. Greenwood

I would highly recommend Sara for character animation work. Sara's clear communication style, attention to detail and hard working style make it a pleasure to work with. I hope to work with Sara again on future projects.

- B. Gardel

I can honestly say I've never worked with anyone more knowledgeable about her field of expertise. She's also hard-working and always the first person to volunteer for projects and committees, even when no one else is willing to take on the extra work. I highly recommend Sara for any job or freelance project. She is an extremely talented artist and her work is stellar, as is her work ethic.

- D. Baxtrom

I am confident that Sara would be a hard-working, talented addition in any position she takes on! I recommend her highly without reservation!
