laborer.- I have worked for and directed portions of several animation collaborative projects and have been paid for my work as a journeyman compositor and painter.

I recently was given two segments of the “King of the Hill Reanimated Collab” and completed them well before deadlines above expectation: I had produced the first segment as an animated, detailed digital painting. Once completed I moved on to work on a portion of the title segment in Toon Boom Harmony as flat cell-shaded animation on ones over a digitally composited video background.
Before the above example, I had also volunteered to help a close friend and colleague in the “Oney Plays’ Totally Tubular Collab” as a background artist, video editor, and prop animator under the direction of said friend.
between both of these, I worked as a Character Animator for a “Teddy” project. This project was abandoned by its creator. I created animated puppets in Adobe Character Animator and Photoshop using RAW image Files.

Before working in animation I sold paintings/artist Prints and was hired as a freelance muralist. I have Managerial experience as an associate manager at my most previous paid position with Blick Art Supplies, and as a Shift Supervisor in the position before that at Boston Market.
