PERSONAL STATEMENT

Storytelling has always played a major role in my life, from playing as a child to reading books and imagining the world I was delving into, and now animation has given me the opportunity for me to bring stories to life for myself and others. I also have a passion for background art and character design, and anything that can further develop a story world and its characters.


Similar to many other animators and artists, I enjoy drawing in my spare time, often using things I see and experience in my daily life as inspiration for my art. Having grown up playing the guitar and listening to a wide variety of music genres I’m really interested in using music to aid in telling a story. I like working with other animators and writers on personal projects when possible.


I am easy to get along with and work well in groups, both small and large. My main goals for my career as an animator are to make content that people will enjoy and I can really be proud of, and to someday tell my own stories and bring them to life.
