I hope to obtain a job working in the 2D or 3D animation fields based off of the experience I have gained after attending Full Sail University. I believe I have the skills to start a career in my field and be able to deliver a lot to the plate, as I have new and interesting ideas to bring to a company.

Hoffman Hatchery [2002-present]
• Where I have gained most of my ‘people and work experience’ was working through my family’s company my entire life, Hoffman Hatchery based in Gratz, Pennsylvania where I have grown up. We raise ducks on a farm and I have helped with shipping them across the United States and typing address labels for the company as well. This has been my job all my life.
