I live in Silicon Valley and sometimes Hawaii if the hour of a deadline fits my needs. I have made music videos, short cartoons, and more experimental animation. I use After Effects for the most part, and a little Blender when I need some complicated 3d in my animations.
For me animation is a passion, a hobby, and fortunately sometimes even a money maker. This is the best time to be doing what I am doing, and for all of us to be doing what we're doing--- making videos for the whole world. The internet is still largely unregulated and this is absolutely the most rich time yet in history to be a filmmaker. I'm thankful that I can show my cartoons to you.
