Gabriel Choquette


My ultimate goal is to master all aspects of animation. I want to be able to do it all and do it well, whether it's creating storyboards, character animation, design, backgrounds, effects, even voice work. 
I am a fast learner, a teacher, a motivator and I love to help people and get them excited about animation. I have been seriously studying illustration and animation for more than 20 years.
