About

I am a graduate of animation at Sheridan College, where I developed advanced 2D skills in Photoshop as well as 3D skills in 3dsmax, Maya, and Blender. The industry changes often and as we head into a more 3D direction, I frequently experiment with my work. I am not afraid to try out new software and workflows. Because of this, I am able to adapt and pick up new methods rather quickly.
