Interactive Designer / Animator


I was contracted to help animate and design for the Launch of a new educational ebooks app. RRKidz is a start-up headed up by founder of Reading Rainbow Levar Burton and other investors. The idea was to bring flat classic children's books to iPads/ Android tablets thus bringing it to life with animations to give kids a more exciting user experience. My job was to breakout characters and art and create animations using Photoshop and CSS3. I also assisted with UI/UX Design. Together our small team successfully brought to life over 500 books for launch with great customer responses, lot of happy kids, and rave reviews by New York Times, NPR, and Fast Company. Shortly after launch Reading Rainbow App went on to become one of the most successful kickstarters of all time raising over 5 Million dollars to bring the app and stories to young readers around the world.
