I am an animator looking to join a team of creatives with the goal of crafting memorable and long lasting performances for audiences of all sizes. I am an experienced animator with over 15+ productions under my belt in a variety of styles including photorealistic and highly stylized. Whether it is creating performances completely key framed, using motion capture, rotomation or anything in between I am comfortable and willing to accept the challenge.
