SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS

I am a detail-oriented animator taught from a traditional background. Highly effective in adapting, collaborating, and communicating with a team. I have experience in hand-key animation and cinematic motion capture animation for video games. I have most recently worked on "The Last of Us: Part 2" and animating with motion capture. I have also created a 3D short film giving me knowledge as a director and manager of a team. I am able to problem solve and work under pressure. Technical savvy and open-mindedness allows me to quickly adapt to learning new software and techniques. Positive, optimistic, and understanding with a dedication to improving my craft.
