About Me

I am a character animator with 7 years of freelance experience in working on both 2D and 3D animation for client. I've worked for clients developing animated music videos, I’ve worked on previs animation for the Eliquis commercial, developed storyboard for an episode. I've also been working on a freelance 3D animation project such as rigging and animating characters for a mobile game. I have completed my internship at Humouring the Fates Studio in Tampa working on adding color and paint effects on Joe's Japanese comic book panels and the animation sequences. According to my current demo reel, I’ve worked on creating scenes which includes character acting and have him doing cool stunts. I’ve used downloaded pre-rigs to having one character doing gymnastics flips, have the father demanding his son to put the candy back in the box, and have the flight attendant forcing the cat to get back to his seat by threaten him with a pepper spray. I’ve work on one scene called “Nominal” for the 11 Second Club Competition in February 2018 and I was ranked at the top 11 list. I've earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Computer Animation at International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa back in 2011. I have strong abilities to animate any given 3D pre-rigged characters inside Autodesk Maya. I chose to become an animator because I always want to tell a good story to the audience by applying strong poses to any given characters to bring them to life. While I'm still on a job hunt to work full-time, I've been working on my own cartoon concept and developing more 3D character animation scenes on my own to keep my demo reel up-to-date because animation is my life.
