Summary

Since I was 12 years old, animation has been my passion. Since my start in Adobe Flash making sprite animations and posting them to YouTube, I have been striving to improve my abilities. During the course of my high school career, I took all the media arts classes I could. I had learned skills such as photo manipulation in Photoshop, stop motion animation, story boarding as well as continue to improve my skills in Adobe Flash (At the time). After I had graduated high school in 2013. I went to work for a company called Battlefield International Inc. The opportunity was presented to me due to my level of performance in the media arts. Originally hired on to assist in the visual development of their online parts catalog. I was asked if I had the ability to create some promotional animations for the company since they knew that animation was the career path I was pursuing. During my time at Battlefield I completed 2 animations for their online presence. This was initial experience in 3D animation. I finished my work at BFI in the spring of 2014 (Which can be viewed from the links under the more tab) and started college that fall. I graduated from Mohawk College's Animation program in the spring of 2016 with honors and am continuing to pursue my dreams and passion in the field of animation by pushing my limits trying to intake new skills and knowledge to better myself as an artist and leader. I am currently pursuing more 2D animation and character design.
