 Experience:

Freelance painter and mural artist. (2004-Present)
                 
Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida (1993-2004)
- Responsibilities: I have more than ten years combined experience with Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida as a Lead Key, Key Assistant, and Inbetweener Clean-Up Animator.  I have led, supervised, and managed a great variety of human and animal characters with different design styles, follow-up crew sizes, and footage requirements while consistently meeting deadlines.  My primary objective as a Lead Key is to use my considerable abilities and skills to assist the Supervising Animator by consistently getting his or her animation, including all the subtleties, onto the screen.  This is achieved through extensive collaboration with the Supervising Animator and Assistants. In addition, I add my knowledge and understanding of animation, ability to interpret roughs, excellent draftsmanship with proficiency and accuracy, and outstanding line quality consistent with the design style, character model, and overall look of the film.  Finally, I teach and train my crew by developing model sheets, conducting demonstrations, analyzing every scene to anticipate problem areas, and cultivating teamwork through motivation, individual attention, and promotion of a fun work environment. My characters beautifully capture the acting performance intended by the Supervising Animator and in turn the Directors’ vision for the character and film.
