About me

I'm a student/freelance animator and illustrator with emphases in 3D character animation and scene layout. Using my experience and interest in zoology, I'm excellent at creating realistic behavior in characters human or animal, but I also love to tell stories just through composition and character posing. I think the best moments in film and illustration are ones that allow the audience to observe and infer the events leading up to the moment they're able to witness.
