Character Animator

I am a studio character animator, game developer and 3D artist. I have worked on several projects including movies, short films and game cinematics. Currently working at Pendulum Studios.

I have the skill and desire to teach students the concepts of animation. It is so exciting to see new ideas and skill to come out of my classes.

What I teach varies from beginner to advanced and from what I have seen, anybody can learn and grow from my courses.
