Looking forward to contributing to the Animation Industry
Strong work ethic and technical drawing skills
Overpowering drive to keep learning and improving my artistic draftsmanship, storytelling, and storyboarding skills. Dependable and meet deadlines, as shown by consistently publishing my comic pages. I'm looking forward to becoming a team player and to keep learning my craft in a studio environment.

Intensive Basic Course Spring II

Workshop (audit version)
I was fortunate to find this Storyboarding Workshop and to sigh up before Steve Ahn seized to offer it. Even though it's an audit version and I don't get direct feedback on my work, I've learned more in the first Video lecture than I did in all my four years at Art College.

Cornish College of the Arts
Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design. (BFA) Magna Cum Laude.
September 2010 - May 2014
Emphasis in Motion Design
Cornish College of the Arts did not have an established Animation program, even so, for my elective classes I made sure to take multiple years of Figure Drawing, 3D Animation with Scott Mayhew and a year of 2D Animation with Tony White, maxing out on everything that was offered.
