I've studied animation off and on since 4th grade. In the fall of 2010 I began my first serious study of film as an adult by taking the intro to claymation class as the North West Film Center School of Film from Will Vinton. In 2011 I took the advanced claymation class through which I completed a nice animatic, but not the claymation short I intended. Hopefully one day it will be completed. In the winter of 2012 I began working for studio pebble as a puppet/prop maker and animator for "fireflies" as well as taking the Digital Video Editing course from NW film center school of film.
