I am a hard working individual seeking creative and challenging work in the digital art field, either for entertainment or advertising. I’ve had six years of classes involving art of all variations from animation and graphic design to oil painting and ceramics. I attended Lamar University as a graphic design major for two years until I transferred to Sam Houston State University and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Animation. I have had training in industry standard programs including Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Autodesk Maya, and Flash. I am resourceful and competent in learning new programs and solving problems, so adapting to my employer’s work flow and specific programs will not be problematic. Having been a server for four years, I am adept at customer service, working well both in a team and unaccompanied. I am eager to learn and produce high quality work for my employer and his/her clients.
