About Me

I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon, probably like most people, but I haven’t stopped since and after watching my father draw, I  wanted to be just like him. From the beginning I always wanted my next drawing to be better than the last. I wanted perfection.

Art has always been a joy of mine.  It is something I get so focused on that everything else disappears.  Every new project is a new challenge and I love figuring out new ways to create and solve. Whether I am creating an intricate, life-like illustration for a book, or drawing the back of a classmate’s head in the middle of a lecture, it is always exciting to see how each project will turn out.

I have always been very detail oriented.  Every little thing put into a piece of art should matter.  That has crossed over into my career as an animator.  It is such an amazing way to bring art to life.  To be able to tell a story and create the illusion of life through a bunch of pictures is so astonishing and spectacular.  From the subtlest gestures, to the most ridiculous and exaggerated movements, anything is possible.  I have spent most of my life trying to create art that looks realistic. I love being able to take what I have learned and push it farther to make the impossible look possible.  What a wonderful world to “work” in.

I believe anyone can become good at a skill, but drive and passion are what set the best apart. I am driven to put everything I have into everything I do because I know the end result will say a lot about myself, the people I represent, and the one who made me and saved me.
