Personal Profile

I’m an enthusiastic and highly skilled animator who absolutely loves his career and
enjoys making characters, ideas and stories come to life. My technical drawing skills are
excellent and I have a great ability to incorporate balance, timing, and weight into
animation. I am trained in traditional 2D animation, and enjoy directing short animated
films and creating memorable characters for all sorts of animations.
