Resume (PDF)

I live in my imagination, and have a passion for animals and painting. I knew from an early age that I wanted to work in the animation indusrtry, and since then have done my best to achieve my dreams.

I have a B.A. in Applied Animation, from Sheridan College, where I completed my film Geirald the 5 Legged Spider which was created for my thesis project. I loved creating that film, and it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life (along with one of the most stressful!)

Currently, I'm a background/matte painter and have worked on shows such as The Adventures of Chuck and Friends, Backyardigans, and Grossology. I spend many hours outside of my day job painting, reading, and enjoying moments with my 15 year old puppy, Mieka, and my horse Lancelot.

I am currently accepting commissions, please contact me for more information.
