I have been pursuing a path in animation since the fourth grade, when I learned that I could do it for a living. From starting with simple flip book animations in my sketchbook as a kid, to creating longer works on my 3DS in high school, I was self taught up until I began my education at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I used my time there to hone my craft, enough to land my first job at Primal Screen where I was an animator on Elf Pets: Santa's St. Bernards Save Christmas holiday special. From there, I've climbed up the company ladder, becoming an animation director after 1 year of contract employment and 3 years of full time employment.
I have always been interested in exploring character, both professionally and independently. I believe that character is the driving force behind any good story, and as an animator, I get to explore a characters personality, thoughts, and feelings. It's like stepping into a whole other world and embodying the character as I bring them to life on screen. I pursue this further in my own free time as I create my own worlds and stories in both the graphic novel I am writing, and the multiple Dungeons & Dragons games that I run. Movies, television series, and video games are also ways I unwind. I have a rather eclectic taste when it comes to most things, but I primarily gravitate towards medieval fantasy, a genre that my own graphic novel is based in.
