Summary

I am an Animator/Illustrator living just outside Los Angeles and working primarily as a character animator for Games and Television.  I have a wealth of experience in Character Design, 2d Animation, 2d Rig Building and am proficient in the latest versions of programs like photoshop CC and Toonboom Harmony 12. I’ve spent most of my career pitching shows to large networks while working full time as an animator/illustrator during the day for such companies as Nickelodeon and Disney.   I am known for my ability to work fast and meet very tight deadlines.  In my spare time I make cartoons for YouTube starring my children and develop show pitches.
