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.
Fast Facts • I can wiggle my ears. • I love D&D (I’ve been playing off and on since 2nd edition). • Don Bluth’s Dragon’s Lair was the catalyst that cemented my direction. • Made viewers emotional over the fate of an animated flour sack. • I have scars on both knees from two separate bike accidents. • I used to draw in coloring books creating comical and ridiculous scenes
