About Me

Anaheim, CA, United States
I look forward to a challenge, and strive to get the job done right. I love working in a team oriented environment. I feed on criticism, and love to share criticism just as much because it builds character. I've been animating for 7 years, starting with traditional animation, and then evolving into 3d animation using Maya. Through out my studies in the arts, specifically in animation, I’ve made an extra effort in the study of human behavior to enhance my understanding of animation and my a target audience.

3 Bites you're Out


This blue character is not my own but was downloaded online. I animated him in this short film. I submitted this film to the Film Festival at California State University, Fullerton. It felt great to see the response everyone had to it. That's what I love most about my animations, that all my hard work was worth while.

Mr. Tarantino

I did this one Summer of 2005. It was a while back ago, but I still like it.

My Boss

This a digital painting I made of my boss for his birthday last year. He loved it. He framed it, and then hung it on his office wall.
