Demo Reel

OK, it's time to shamelessly promote my demo reel. Here it is!

Full Size Direct Link

Chewy Soft

I currently work at Chewy Software as a Flash animator. I mainly work on educational games for preschoolers for LeapFrog systems. Some of the games we've created include characters from Nickelodeon and Disney. I started working at Chewy last January, so unfortunately none of the game I've worked on are on the website. Here are some games that have been released. I did all the animation for Go Diego Go, and some animation in Puppy Pals.

11 Second Club

The 11 Second Club is this great website where animators can download a sound file each month, then upload the animations they create using the sound file. At the end of the month users vote on all the entries.

I submitted entries to the competition two months this fall. In September my animation got 2nd place, and in October my animation got 5th place! To see my animations larger on my website, check out "You Killed Him?" and "Monotony."


I figured I'd better do a little retro-blogging.

This past August at Siggraph in LA, I competed in an incredibly amazing competition called FJORG! (with a silent 'j' like forge) I was on the team "the Fjantastic Fjorgers" with my awesome teammates Sean Coleman and Brad Bradbury. We hadn't even met before the competition, yet we worked together well and are now good friends. You can learn more about fjorg and see all the films at the fjorg website. There is also a short documentary that explaining how the competition worked and showing all the fun we had. You can see a larger version of our film on my website here.

Not only was this an incredible experience, but our team's fjinal fjilm tied for second place!!! As part of our prize, we got to visit Disney Animation and DreamWorks Studios.

Fjorg was probably the most amazing animation experience of my life, and I am so glad to have been a part of it.
