design • motion photography


Hi! I’m Vira, good to meet you.


I am a designer, and a problem solver. I am curious, I like to learn what makes things work.  I am tenacious, determined and I  see things through.


In the late 90’s, I studied studio art at the University of Kansas City - Missouri.  Since then I’ve had a broad range of experiences in graphic design. From color correction, magazine layout, and broadcast TV, I’ve gone on to be a photographer, a web designer and most importantly, an animator.


So, what do I really love? My heart really is with animation. From my original studies in animation at university to designing and implementing motion graphics for Sprint, I have continued to pursue opportunities in motion design.  A majority of the retail digital display content at Sprint is now managed and animated by myself and our internal team.


As with many people in the creative fields, I have collaborated with internal teams, and with our external design agencies. I have managed external relationships with our vendors, worked within budgets and demanding time constraints.


I enjoy creative challenges. My skills and experience have helped make me not only a confident designer, but one willing to explore new experiences. Whether I’m on the racetrack or jumping off the Stratosphere in Las Vegas, I’m adventurous and like to be challenged.
