I'm a graduate from the Animation program at the School of Visual Arts. I first used Macromedia Flash in 7th grade, and instantly fell in love with the art of animated filmmaking. While I most enjoy writing the story itself, I have a passion for every step of the process, and I typically write, storyboard, voice act, animate, color, and compose the music entirely on my own.
But that doesn't mean I'm a lone wolf, no sir. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, having volunteered many times to teach kids filmmaking and animation, and when someone has knowledge they want to share with me, I'm always eager to learn.
My short films have won numerous awards, including the jury prize in the Cinemocracy international film competition, and most recently, my short Fluffy the Flying Fish was licensed to KQED and was airing on various PBS stations around the country.
