I’m Mary Hawkins and I’m an animator+designer in New York City. AfterEffects and I are good friends and Photoshop and I go waaaaay back.

I make a lot of things for a lot of people. They all keep telling me that I’m fast, flexible, accommodating and awesome. When I was at MTV, we didn’t always have a lot of time for tweaking. Some of these promos went from a pile of god-knows-what to a finished spot with audio in two days flat.

Outside of work, I’m the lead jeerleader and Brooklyn squad captain for Gotham Girls Roller Derby. I’m slowly learning to talk prettier in French. I also knit for charities including Afghans for Afghans and Friends of the Pine Ridge Reservation. I have visited all 50 states and 25 foreign countries.
