I am a 2D artist and animator based out of New England. I began drawing at a young age and started animating as an experiment around the year 2004. Animation quickly became a passion of mine and I have animated a variety of short films in addition to work on several feature films. In 2012, I graduated cum laude from Emerson College where I majored in animation and motion media. In addition, I went on to receive further education at Rhode Island School of Design where I developed more skills in the realm of 2D animation. As of today, I have provided animation for seven narrative feature films and three documentaries. Among them, the film EUROCRIME! has screened in ten countries and at 15 different film festivals. It was also written up in Variety magazine where it received critical praise along with the award for best documentary at the Another Hole in the Head Film Festival in San Francisco, CA. I also provided animation for the award winning films MY NAME IS JONAH (awarded best New England film at the Boston Underground Film Festival) and THE MINSTREL KILLER (awarded best exploitation film at the Pollygrind Film Festival).
