"My dream is to give people joy through story"

What does being an animator mean to me? 


Being an animator is the thrill of taking a static idea and breathing life into dynamic motion, the boundless passion for exploring imagination, the ability to evoke emotions within the audience while creating strong empathic connections to characters, and the drive to push the boundaries of both technology and storytelling. My dream is to give people joy through story.

As an Animation Production Manager at Crafty Apes, I oversaw the planning, coordination, and delivery of high-quality animation for various projects, including films such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Creator, Violent Night, etc., and episodics such as The Last of Us Season 1, Shadow and Bone Season 2, The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, among others. I have a deep knowledge of Autodesk Shotgun as I used that as the main production management software, alongside Microsoft Office and Google Applications. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in animation from Savannah College of Art and Design, and a certificate in character animation from Animation Mentor.

With over 2.5 years of combined experience as a freelance 3D animator and junior animator at Crafty Apes, I have worked on several independent and collaborative tasks, such as creating a promo for Run Totti Run, and animating for Little Fan, a short film that premiered in 2023. At Crafty Apes, I animated for projects such as Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and Vol 3., The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, among others. I am passionate about animation and visual effects, and I enjoy working with talented and creative teams to bring stories to life.
