I am a motivated and enthusiastic individual. I animate in Maya and I rig and animate in Toon Boom. Leading a team and being part of a team that wants to create beautiful animation is extremely fulfilling. I enjoy pushing myself and learning new skills. In my spare time I watch far too many films and TV shows. I love to doodle, travel and I enjoy coffee a little too much.
