Personal Statement/s

I have years of animation, and games production experience and have worked on titles in the AAA, PC, and Mobile spaces. Some of them were even award-winning. I have film and television credits and a long list of online clients in the advertising and educational space. I have worn many hats over the years and understand the nuances of being a Digital Creative.

 

I am also an educator and design/ develop visual and interactive learning solutions that support training in the technology, animation, and games space. I often contribute graphics, and written materials for online, e-learning, and instructor-led courses. I have taught many of these classes over the years and continue to do so to this day.
