Ever since I can remember, cartoons have been a huge part of my life. From eating bowls of sugary cereal in front of the TV on Saturday mornings to earning my animation certificate at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College, animation has always been my passion. It is my dream to one day be apart of the teams that help kids escape from reality to lands of fun and adventure. One day I hope to start my own animated series but you have to crawl before you can walk.
Originally I went to Wright State University and earned my bachelors in Liberal Studies. During this time, I studied various art mediums to develop my drawing skills and story telling abilities. Once I graduated, I attended the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College where I studied Animation. It was there that I learned to use various programs such as Flash, Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, and Maya.
During my time at UCBA, I won the Outstanding Certificate Graduate Award and received an honorable mention at the Ohio Regional Emmy Awards for student animation for my cartoon "Epic Bath." Once I earned my certificate, I was employed as an independent contractor at Flaming Medusa Studios where I developed layouts for animated television advertisements. I have also done various free lance jobs in which I would design custom logos and characters to help promote people's businesses and events. As shown on the homepage, I received the Best of 2015 award for my services based on customer reviews.
Ever since I started down this path I have never been happier with my life. Animation has helped me to see that all things are possible and that in life anything can happen.
