Anticipated Graduation Date: May 2019

About Me

My name is Chris and I am currently pursuing a major in animation. My motto is "Improve everyday". Someway everyday I find a way to make myself a better me. Whether physically, mentally or spiritually, I find myself always competing against the me of the past.

Everyday, I also try to be a good standing citizen. From big things like being a part of a big organization for kids to the small things like just saying hello. If I can brighten up the day of just one person I meet, I feel that I have accomplished my personal task for the day.

As far as my skills go, I am adept at drawing Adobe Creative Cloud and music. In all of my works, I try to incorporate all three of my mediums in. My specialty is in animating people and living things, giving them character just in the way they move. Learning Adobe CC enhances this skill that I have acquired. On the side of music, I have skills in both piano and violin. I use my piano skills for an organization on campus. I am also in the line to composing a few pieces, some I use on projects.

Featured Projects


Desktop Dance (Music)

Desktop Dance (Music)

This was the music used for an animation project I had completed quite recently. I combined a waltz style with a little bit of harder electronic bass and kick and it turned out well. I fully utilized Fruity Loops Studio 8 to make this piece of music come to life.

SnowBrawl!!

SnowBrawl!!

This was a final animation project that I had. I used good ole' white paper pencil, a camera, some good LCD lights, Adobe Lightroom, and Adobe After Effects. It was quite fun animating the two characters and their interactions with each other. This project took about 3 weeks to complete

Dragon Fly

Dragon Fly

I was the sole animator of this project. I had completed this during my animation class last year. I had used Adobe Lightroom, After Effects, Audacity, and a pencil and paper. I had demonstrated the use of exaggeration in this piece, making the characters feel cartoonish to my attracted audience.

Have you ever wanted to be in your own blockbuster film with special effects? The Greenscreen Experience can get you close: step in front of the green screen, where you and your friends act together in a short clip. Bradley students will then work to edit your footage, placing you in a variety of fantastical situations: hiding from dinosaurs, wielding some fire, dancing in space, and more! Select from a variety of fun props, act out your scene, and leave the rest of production to the students. Videos will be sent out via email.
