Microsoft Windows

I use both Mac and PC, literally, on a daily basis. I'm a graphic designer that grew up using both computers which gave me an advantage. I know everything from the basics like where the programs folders are, to a bit more advanced things like setting up network sharing of internet, files and printers. I also used to work in IT.

I am working currently as an animator. I specialize in 2D animation but I've gone to school for 3D animation as well. I use a lot of traditional techniques in my animation style even in my motion graphics animations. I do character animation everything from the basic walk cycle to more complex action shots.
