My experiences in animation, illustration, game design and web coding have all been enhanced through my work experience and freelance projects. I am skilled in various art forms such as animating, game development, figure drawing, sculpture, storyboarding and layout design. I am proficient in using various production software in broadcast and web such as: flash, Softimage 6.5/Maya7, ADOBE CS3, action script 2 and 3/CSS/Java script. My work experiences include: 2D/3D animator, in house graphic designer, production assistant, video editor, web designer and game development.
