About Me

Sydney Hirsch. Michigander-turned-Brooklynite. Some of my talents include communicating with cats using mouth noises, amassing a vast collection of priceless vintage t-shirts, and following the rule of threes. My favorite things are TV shows (30 Rock, Tim & Eric, anything narrated by Bill Kurtis), mid-century modern houses, emo boys, pop culture, retro kitsch, Elliott Smith, Angelfire, documentaries, drag queens, psychedelia, and true scary stories.

  I hold a Bachelors Degree (2015) from the University of Michigan in Screen Arts and Cultures, a major that incorporates elements of filmmaking, screenwriting, and theory. 

    Since 2019, I’ve been a motion graphics artist, working on TV spots for brands such as Peloton, Clinique, Macy’s - and, yes, Popeyes Chicken. You’ve probably seen my work on TV, the internet, or the VMAs. 

I love depicting those quiet in-between moments, whether it’s in my photography, illustration, or fiction writing.  I also like to write non-fiction about interior design trends for Architectural Digest. 

I post jokes and passing thoughts on my Twitter account.  Other than that, I spend most of my free time illustrating commissions, hanging out with my cat, Buzz, or munching on a Payday bar.

Feel free to e-mail me if you think there’s anything I missed.
