I'm a techie with an artistic heart who's been working in software for 2+ years and has always carried a passion for the arts and animation. I'm a Colorado native with a history in animation of 7+ years between freelance, studies, and studio productions. I graduated with Magna Cum Laude from UT Dallas in Arts and Technology where I developed both technical and artistic skill sets. From there, I followed my passion of animation to California where I studied at Animation Mentor for two years during which I worked in Post-Production at DreamWorks Animation and a PDF software start-up called Nitro. After graduating AM, I was selected by Nitro to be part of the US landing team to work abroad in Dublin, Ireland and open their European HQ. After my 6 month stay in Ireland, I returned back to the San Francisco Bay Area where I was promoted into a Technical Account Manager at Nitro.
