Hey guys and gals!
Haven't been here in a while. I was finishing up my thesis and busy getting it submitted. Needless to say all that graduate work is finally done and my thesis has been approved! Been a long time coming for sure. Now I get to go back into my film and re-work a few things so I can then submit it to animation festivals. So like my first film First Bite, I won't be able to post it online anytime soon. If you haven't seen my first short about puppies and vampires, go to my website and look under "animations"

In other news, my girlfriend and I are co-creating a webcomic that will be debuting this summer. Above is a little teaser image. Be on the lookout for  "My Life with a Redhead."
