While I don't consider myself an animator, my passion is the creation and design of the characters and the creation of their story. I have confidence in my ability to design lovable characters and to draw out the story boards that start the process of giving them life.
I have been watching cartoons and been influence to draw by them since I was very young. I continue drawing and watching to this day and I will never outgrow them. Cartoons have a special universality that no other art form can claim.
Some of my favorite cartoon shows and animated films are:
- Lilo and Stitch
- Beauty and the Beast (gotta love Glen Keane!)
- Wreck-It Ralph
- Rise of the Guardians
- My Neighbor Totoro
- Ed, Edd, n' Eddy
- Classic Mickey mouse shorts
- Spongebob Squarepants
- Mighty Ducks; the Animated Series
- Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends
- My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
- Samurai Jack
- Disney's Bonkers
I live in the inland Northwest of the United States, which will always be "home" to me. I would, however, be more than willing to work long-distance and pay occasional visits to my employer if they happen to not be in the immediate area.
I am open for freelance commissions and permanent positions. Thanks for looking at my porftolio and I hope you like what you see!
