Certificate, Sheridan College

First year at SCAD:
2011

Everyday has been an amazing experience in the animation industry. I have learned how to adapt, create and motivate during my career. My ability to enhance any genre with my humor, drama and storytelling sensibilities has fulfilled all the dreams I had as a college student. I now want to give back and help the next generation of animators create even more powerful stories and characters.

Credentials

Creating my popular Web comic, Team Spectacular, inspired by my micro-preemie son.
