Born and raised in a tiny town in Nebraska, art has been Clint's hobby and passion since the 3rd grade. He always saw everything in an artistic way. Video games were always considered a toy to his parents, but he saw the art involved in creating them, even with the Atari 2600 games. Once in high school, computer animation started to really take off in cinema with "Toy Story", and the first movie he watched was "A Bug's Life". After seeing that, he realized the future of animation was in the computer graphics department. He went to a few colleges after high school and currently has two Associate's degrees, but now he finally is getting the education and skills he'd always wanted for 3D computer animation.
