PROFILE SUMMARY:

I have been a passionate animator  and artist for more than 10 years in the mobile game and television industry. I had earned my BFA in Applied Media Arts from Edinboro University and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the state school in 2003.

Using mainly Adobe Flash/Animate, my work can be seen in connection with companies such as Dreamworks, BBC, HBO, Scholastic, SEGA, and Nickelodeon. This includes VR, casual MMOs, direct-to-video, and interactive DVDs for a wide target audience. I excel in animation and character design! I have also just recently began working in Blender 3D and Maya to broaden my skillset.
