About Me


Versatile animator, illustrator, and motion designer. I am a determined creative who is always ready to step up and take on new challenges. I am skilled in Adobe Creative Suite, specifically Photoshop and After Effects. I have also worked in ToonBoom Harmony and OpenToonz. Outside of work, I love to garden and bake. I am a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy books, movies, and comics. I am a great asset to your quiz team and will go off on strange tangents about world history. Feel free to message me and reach out, I would love to talk.
