Hey Everyone!

So I have landed my first animation gig! It is working for a studio called Gloomshade on a project called "City of Friends" This is my third week and it has been a lot of fun and hard work so far. I get to animate a good variety of characters and lots of different actions and emotions. I will post up my finished shots once they are released and I have permission. Check out the website to see more about the project:

December Update!

Hey Everybody!!

Happy December! I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving! Mine was splended and I think I am still full from all the food.

Well, it has been a somewhat productive last few months. As I continue to look for an animation job, I am trying to stay motivated and continuing to add to my demo reel. I will be sending a few more reels out this month and then going to another Animation Mentor Job Fair on January 15th!


Below is my updated reel with a new dialogue shot and a new sequence of shots (I'll call it a short short short film) I would love to hear any comments or critiques you have as I am still tweaking and updating!

Still Alive!

Hey there!

Yes...I am still alive and kicking...and animating! I am still looking for an animation job and working on my skills. I recently revisited this shot and am getting close to calling it final. I want to put in a few more details and then do a final polish but I'm pretty happy with how it has come out. As always, I would love to hear your comments!

Whats new?


So I graduated in March and am looking for an animation job in the film industry. I applied for Disney's Talent Development Program and made it to the final round! But, I found out last week I was not chosen. So, that is more motivation to keep working on my stuff and to make it the best I can! I've applied at most of the big studios and recieved a few rejection letters. Now, I feel like it is more about timing and opportunities that arise. I feel like i've learned so much at AM and am ready to work at a studio. I just need someone to give me that chance to show them I can do it!

For now, I've been working on a new dialogue shot. I'd love to hear your thoughts! The clip is from my favorite movie, "Harry and the Hendersons" Right now, I've taken it out of blocking and am starting to refine the movement and focus on little arcs and timing changes.

Here it is:


Hopefully there will be some exciting news to come soon in the somewhat near future!

I'm Still Alive!

Hey All,

Yes, I am still alive. I finished up AM in March and am still working at EA as a lighter for the next few weeks. I have started looking for where I will go next and am super excited to jump into a career as a character animator. I have applied at 7 studios and waiting to hear back from 6. Also, the Animation Mentor job fair is coming up next so I am going to get reels together for that as well!

I've updated my website with my latest info and demo reel:

Feel free to check it out! I'll keep you updated with the latest that is going on in my life.

IT'S A WRAP!!!! ...almost


Sorry for the lack of posts lately but it has been BUSY!! The good news is, I just turned in my FINAL assignment for Animation Mentor and my last Q and A is this Wednesday!! Although this is a bittersweet celebration, I'm excited to be done with school, forever, and happy with how my film turned out.

I say almost because I still plan on polishing, lighting and rendering my short in the next couple weeks. Then, I will put that along with some other shots on my reel and start applying for a job! I'll keep you posted with all the latest. But for now, here is my short film, Kissing Booth!

Class 6: Week10

Hey everyone!!

Sorry for the late post. WOW have I been busy!!! There is a lot left to do on my film but I am happy with the direction it is going. I expect to get the film done to a satisfactory level with the animation and the will spend 4-5 weeks after that polishing it for my reel and lighting/rendering it.

Anyways, here is where my film is at currently. I have done a polish pass for the entire film (except one shot) and am going back through the first half this week and polishing everything that needs it. Then, next week is the last assingment where I will polish the second half of the film.

So, without further adieu here is...
