I have been commended by my employers and coworkers for my​ dedicated work ethic​, approachable personality​, ​proactive spirit​, and a ​unique sense of style and humor​ that are evident in all of my projects.

I'm a freelancer who specializes in 2D animation from the United States Animation. Isn’t there anything it can’t do? From bringing fantastic worlds to life to making the impossible possible, there is something inherently magical about the medium. It’s these reasons and more why I chose to become an animator. Creating has always been as natural to me as breathing…and about as necessary too. Since I was able to hold a pencil, I have always been drawing on anything and everything (bless the teachers that didn’t mind test papers with Popeye drawings in the margins). While animating is my primary passion, I do enjoy designing characters and illustrating as well. Feel free to reach out to me if you need an animator, designer, or illustrator. I would love to hear about your project and how I can help bring it to life. I check my email regularly and will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

About animators

Animation is the process of making single multiple single images and then sequencing them together to create an illusion of movement. Animations can be made up of digital or hand-drawn pictures, clay or rubber models or puppets. A high-quality animation can showcase your product in an original, creative and engaging way - helping to drive your sales and dramatically boost your brand awareness. Search engines also give high priority to video content, so a high quality animated video is far more likely to appear at the top of search results than a text only page. This is why animated explainer videos have become the icing on the cake of any online marketing strategy.

Animators can work in a variety of styles, including 2D animation, 3D model-making animation, stop motion or computer-generated animation. Computer-generated animation has become the most popular type of animation over the last few decades (to create special effects or as a digital animated film in its own right). The type of work animators can be hired for is extremely flexible, from television, commercial content to the computer games industry. Animators tend to use Autodesk and Adobe software suites, as well as Blender and Cinema 4D.

On Twine, you'll find talented professional 2D and 3D animators with a wide variety of experience in a range of industries and mediums. So whether you are developing a professional explainer video or an epic battle in space, you can find animators to bring your concept to life on Twine.
