OBJECTIVE:

 To provide high quality work for your company as a qualified artist.

CORE VALUES:

Imagination – has written many stories over the span of 10 years, and for these stories has designed and developed countless amounts of different characters.

Creativity – almost completely self-taught, spends about 87% of the week working on projects varying from an ongoing 3-year-old webcomic, to directing, performing, and editing videos for youtube, commissions, costume-making, and writing story scripts.

Artistic Vision – mixes in knowledge from film-making and theatre experience to bring characters to life through realistic movement, logic and emotion, also to direct the characters through their scenes in a visually pleasing way by the proper angles and cuts on camera or by comic panel… good eye for detail and what stage direction will move the story along.

Tenaciousness – will finish every project started no matter how long it takes, no matter how stressful or how many hours of sleep lost… projects get done, they get done on time, and there is no “good enough,” they get done well.
