I am a 24-year-old director/animator/designer currently living in Los Angeles, CA.
I grew up in the small but lovely town of Moorhead, MN –– right across the river from Fargo, ND. There, I taught myself how to draw and animate around the age of 9, largely as a way to occupy my ever-expanding imagination (as well as escape from the Hoth-like winters).
I recently graduated from the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts (BA 2017), where I was able to make several films, including my thesis, Cradle.
I'm currently writing and developing a few new projects, but if you are in need of a storyboard artist/designer/animator/excitable-scamp for a project (or if you just want to chat), feel free to contact me anytime at devon (at) devonm.com!
