I'm a character and effect animator skilled in 2D/cel animation, storyboarding and prop design. I take pride in my compelling storytelling and use of color palettes that compliment each animation I produce. I work well in fast-paced environments, focusing on multilpe tasks, while maintaining speed and precision, at the same time fostering creativity and humor on projects. I have lead teams of artists, but I'm able to take direction and welcome the opportunity to collaborate. I am eager to take on projects with companies that allow me to grow.

Saw project through from start to finish. I started on character designs, redesigning Twinkle Toes to Skecher's specifications, as well as translated the shoes into the digital medium and created all assets. I assisted in storyboarding, then moved on to working on and taking an overlooking role on the animation and clean up of the piece.
Used Photoshop to produce detailed, fully rendered storyboards for a movie spot.
