3D Character Animation

155 Potomac Passage, Unit 435 - OXON HILL, Maryland - 20745 - United States

I’m currently on a journey to transition from the business world to the entertainment industry. My journey began with a lucky opportunity to tour Disney Animation Studios. I’ve always considered myself artistic but never considered being an artist professionally until that moment. Witnessing the process and inner workings of the movies I’ve loved watching all my life was my epiphany moment. Since then, I’ve never wanted anything more than to be a part of creating beautiful content. I’ve spent the last few years studying animation and feel I’d be a great asset.
