Summary

Experienced animation production team member seeks a new story to help bring to life.

Education

California Institute of the Arts – BFA, Theatre Arts – May 2006

I attended CalArts for the theater acting program. The acting program is quite rigorous and emphasizes collaboration and creative exploration. I acted in 15 plays, 2 short films, and voiced characters in 3 animated films. Each one of those projects required total commitment to an entirely new team. Though most people might doubt the value of a BFA in Acting, that acting program gave me something I don’t know if any other degree could. My education forged me into a creative thinker that knows how to fail fast and take notes. It taught me to be a consummate problem solver always on the lookout for ways to learn and contribute, better ways listen, understand, and improve, all in the service of telling the best most magical story possible.
