OBJECTIVE


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, 2D, 3D, 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!
