Film, animation, and storytelling has been calling to me my entire life.  If there's anything I know for certain, it's that this is what I want to spend my life doing;  Making engaging animations that bewitch the consciousness.  I create the art for my solo projects frame by frame, using programs like Adobe Photoshop Elements or Corel Painter.  Then, using Anime Studio, Adobe After Effects, or Pinnacle Studio, I lace together the animations, edit the videos, and build the final project.  I make sure to use just the right sound effects, and I strive to get it as perfect as I can make it at the moment.  I've often impressed my family and peers.  People tell me that my composition and animation effects are startling and very effective at conveying an artistic vision.
