Drawing and storytelling have always been two passions of mine. When I was 9 years old, I made a comic series about my adventures with an imaginary cat named Meow. When I was 12, I made another comic series about a simple hot dog named Frank and his pessimistic candy neighbor named M.
It wasn't until high school that I realized that animation was my dream job. I worked in a summer animation program for two years, and have loved the craft ever since.
Animation is incredible. You make comics (storyboards) that, after animating and revising, turn into movies. There is nothing quite like it.
Bradley University has given me the great opportunity to refine my storytelling and animating skills. They have provided me with many tools to make the best animations I can. Hopefully, I will create animations for a company that focuses on quality entertainment for the whole family.
This 2016 animation takes a fun noir spin on the iconic "Where's My Supersuit?" scene from the movie, The Incredibles. I used Photoshop and Illustrator to create the characters and art, Audition for the sound, and After Effects for the animating.
This 2016 video game is an endless runner about a pizza delivery guy who must dodge cars, branches, and squirrels for as long as possible. All art was created in Photoshop and Illustrator. The game itself was created in Stencyl.
