My Bio
I am a black, queer, trans (they/them), animator and artist working in the film industry. My interests include reading, playing video games, social justice, watching anime, and obviously art. My favorite subjects are animals, creatures, and furries, though I admire artists who can draw appealing human characters. I aspire to have said ability someday, lol. I'm also in the process of teaching myself how to paint. In my quest to become an animator, I neglected to learn about things like color and painting, since they aren't part of what I would be doing on the job. So now I'm playing catch up in that area.

I am also an introvert, and very much a cat person. =^-^= My mainstay genre of choice for books, movies, and games is fantasy. I'll read/watch/play others, but swords, sorcery, magic, and dragons style fantasy is what I always return to. If a portal opened up to a fantasy world, I would go through it immediately. Especially if I could be a werewolf, a dragon, a spell caster, and/or have the ability to turn into animals.

Hey folks, I just wanted to share a video I listened to this afternoon while painting that I thought was really good. I loved Adam's message in the video about growth as an artist and as a person. I remember being so hellbent on getting into Disney back when I was in school and going back there each time I was laid off. Now, almost seven years later, I can see how the things Adam is talking about applies to me. I'm no longer obsessed about working at any particular studio and am not spending my free time working on tests to help me get there. Instead, I am learning to listen to my own internal guide about what I should be doing art wise. L

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted the trailer for the film I'm currently working on! I've clearly been wasting far too much time on Facebook and have be neglecting my DA page. I'm sure folks have seen it by now, but if for some reason you haven't, here you go: This is a challenging project animation wise, but in a very good way. Everything about this show is awesome, and I still can't believe I'm actually working on it!!! =D Aaaaaaaaand if you're interested, please go see Hotel Transylvania 3 this month. I worked on that one to and had an absolute bast! I was expecting that show to be much harder than it was, based on what folks who wor

You are honestly a huge inspiration to me, especially because I've actually wanted to join the animation industry since I was very young. You also in general, make great art!

Hey, what surprise?

Happy early birthday!
