As a graduate from Animation Mentor I have been looking to focus my career more towards the Character Animation and to relocate to the greater Seattle area. For the past several I years I have been working locally creating 3D models, textures, animations and illustrations for a variety of projects ranging from computer based training to visual effects production. Through all of these projects I have been able to gain valuable experience dealing with deadlines and working as part of a production team.
Outside of professional 3D work I have always had a very artistic side which has led me to hobbies such as Painting, Sculpting, and just about anything creative I could get into. Over the years these hobbies have lead to some very interesting opportunities including a couple of art schools and a stop motion animation internship
