Graduated from the School of Visual Arts and was honored with being selected as the Bachelor Candidate (their version of valedictorian), and spoke at the commencement for the Class of '09 at Radio City Music Hall.
Strong leadership and communication skills (currently working for the second year on the SIGGRAPH Student Volunteer Subcommittee as the Industry Relations Lead.)
Built the SIGGRAPH 2013 Special Sessions program with presentations that includes the participation of Blizzard Entertainment, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Animation Mentor, and others.
I graduated from the four year undergraduate program at the top of my class. Created a thesis animation that I took into eight festivals across the country. Through the rigorous training program at SVA, I was introduced to traditional art media, the creation of motion graphics, and became familiar with many aspects of 3D graphics creation, gaining a basic understanding of modeling, texturing, rigging and lighting.
