Digital Art Instructor with emphasis in 2D and 3D animation

I have taken a variety of film classes, written about many films in graduate school, and teach acting and animation history which inescapably intersects the world of film theory and practice.

Published Writer and Lecturer

I wrote my philosophy thesis on theories of cinema in Gilles Deleuze.
