My name is Conner and I'm a motion & graphic designer currently based in Portland, Oregon. I studied graphic design at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications @ Syracuse U. I also minored in European History in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs (if you want to talk German leftist politics in the Weimar Era, PLEASE drop me a line). I love making things that move and things that stay still. I especially love working with non-profits. 

On the side, I dabble in film photography. You can check out my photos on my Instagram or my blog.
