BFA 2D Animation/Tradition Character Animation
I was born in Indiana, but moved to and grew up in California where I was exposed to a lot of animation from a young age. I grew up with the usual suspects: Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney. My first memory of actually animating was of a bouncing ball on a post-it note stack. In the third grade, I learned about Pivot Animation from a friend wherein I briefly got into animating stick figures. Later on in high school, I used that to animate for small competitions on DeviantArt, where I met a lot of my influences and largely shaped what I wanted to be from then on. Now I’m about to graduate from AAU, so that’s nice.
