Animation & Visual Effects / MA
"For the last twelve years I have actively pursued a profession as a traditional animator. My introduction to the craft was when my mother strong-armed me into taking an animation class my first term of high school. Reluctant at first, I’ve been passionate about making animation ever since my first pencil test. Today I still attend the Academy in pursuit of my MFA in Traditional Animation, but during the off season I return to my small hometown of Waldport on the Oregon Coast.
