I have loved art since I was little. In college I realized that I was a writer, and while I continued drawing, telling stories became a thing I did with words, not images.
It didn't occur to me that I could do both. It's a little sad that I didn't get a chance to understand the depth of my desire to work in animation until after all my finances for college were close to depleted. As a storyboarder, what I bring to the table is a thorough understanding of film language, a deeply intuitive sense of body language and humor and gesture, and of course an innate storytelling ability I have been honing for many years now.
What I lack in is draftsmanship. I am trying to close the gap in my knowledge and skill, but with a learning disability that makes independent learning difficult, I struggle without a teacher.
Nevertheless, I continue to try to learn. To the right, you will see an old model pack and animatic that I completed during a continued education course at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

While the denizens of this realm and the occasional human that stumbles into it have ideas about how humans get there and why, these are all theories that cannot be proven or disproven.
