Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj is a weekly news and political comedy show on Netflix. The show synthesizes cutting-edge technology, sharp comedic writing, and award-winning motion graphics to immerse viewers in a vibrantly shifting landscape unlike anything else on television.

I’ve applied my design and animation skills to Patriot Act since it launched in 2018. Collaborating with the best creative team in the business, I’ve contributed to the show’s evolution to a dazzling kinetic platform that entertains, informs, and inspires.

2018-2019 Primetime Emmy Awards 
Winner, Outstanding Motion Design

Patriot Act shifted direction with the global impact of COVID-19 in Spring 2020. We redesigned the show to comply with social distancing norms and adapted our creative direction to maintain the same level of high quality graphics in a new format.
