Who I Am

Storyteller

I am an animator and filmmaker pursuing my love of telling great stories. My passion for movies keeps me pushing myself on every project. I am always looking to learn new techniques and expand my abilities.

At the core of everything I do lies the love for making the fantastical come to life.

As many children, I loved cartoons from an early age. I remember renting countless Inspector Gadget VHS tapes from the local library. I don't think there was a single one that I hadn't seen. As I grew up, my love for cartoons and movies always stayed with me. My tastes moved from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman to Star Wars and Jurassic Park. The spectacualr special effects in these movies in the early days of 3D animation inspired me to pursue animation as a career.
