MY WORLD, MY WORK

Profile

As a passionate, creative professional, I use a holistic approach to the projects I create, collaborate on, or am hired for. I believe that my background in fine arts, illustration, animation, screenwriting and film-making gives me a unique perspective in turning out a product, whether it be a storyboard from a film, the film production itself, the illustration for a book cover, or an animation. My hope to invoke various, much welcomed, emotions from my audiences. If you feel the same as I do, I would love to collaborate with you, so please drop me a line.
