Ive always been an artist since as long as I could remember. Wether it was drawing on the brand new kitchen table or the desk at school. I've always loved bringing my ideas to reality through sketching and other mediums. Once I hit high school I became curious as to how I could take my art to the next level. Then I saw "Toy Story" and descided that 3D was the way to do it. Since before I graduated in 2002 I've eatin, slept and breathed 3D modeling and animation and have since learned both Maya and 3D studio max and am always looking for ways to increase my skills and persue this career goal as a 3D artist. I've won awards through an organization called Skills USA in which all the 2 year colleges get together to develop competitive skills that will aid us in the work force in the future. The competition itself involved animating a short film in the period of 7 hours that followed the guidlines given by the judges. Well we took 1st place and are looking forward to finals in Kansas in July.
