My Bio
I am a father of the 2 best kids in the world, a beat maker, electronic music maker, audio engineer, animator guy who specializes in action/fight choreographer.

I had the pleasure of being mentored by Monty Oum and later worked with him directly as his #2 for 3 years before his passing.

During that era I animated on Red vs Blue Season 10, RWBY Black and Yellow trailers, RWBY Vol 1 & 3 and also finished a solo project of mine Megaman X Fanimation.

I need energy. Not getting good sleep really adds up after a while. :sleepy: [super tired so all the below may or may not make sense] TLDR unless you're interested in rants about life stuff ; Life has become stranger than I remember it ever being. So many people have come and gone; people who've entered into this life and are no longer here. Sorry I haven't put much of my work out there in a while. It does weigh heavy on me at times living with the fact I worked so closely with Monty Oum. Then to look at how much I've accomplished since then. Its been over 6 years since he passed. 5 since peace'n out of Rooster Teeth. Then near nonstop dealing w the aftermath of divorce, while working multiple "not great" job, both parents passing away helping my sis (also having gone through divorce) to get back on her feet. Its been like building a Lego fortress then it gets rekt, then rekt several more times as its being rebuilt. Ive avoided animation work and stuck to "regular" jobs

So.. I've been working on a little something for the past few years. Its been slow moving, partly because life is just nuts all the time and never seems to let up. I'm sure most people can relate. The important thing is we don't stop just because things get hard. All of the action you see was me doing my best to put to use everything I learned from my time with Monty Oum (Haloid, Dead Fantasy, Red Vs Blue X, RWBY, etc). I still kinda suck at the rhythm aspect of this, but still working on it. It didn't help that I made all the music after the fact, whereas he would usually start with music for the pacing while storyboarding in his head. I kind of made things harder for myself in that way, but I felt I needed to do this. I guess in some ways getting through it despite the challenges was me fighting through irl difficulties. Feels good to finally get to the other side. Anyway, I don't have much else to say or any profound words of wisdom. Just wanted to update my

I know I've been out of the scene for animation for a bit.   Real-life stuff is the culprit (will spare you the details). Recently I had to stop working on little project due to how things have been affecting me. Rather than completely stop I was able to shift my focus to doing some unusual (for me) fun creations. I've been a longtime fan of Wipeout since it originally come to Playstation back in the 90s it has been a huge influence on me creatively and musically. Definitely go check out BallisticNG on Steam. It's devs are awesome and actively working on it. It's not just a clone. There have been many games attempting to recreate that s
