new project

I'm back at home after a long trek from Florida to Ohio. I bought a new Cintiq 22HD right before I got laid off at Digital Domain, so I'm making good use of it! Starting up a new personal project. More to come!

Updated Portfolio

Hey guys.  I'm currently looking for work!



This has been 2 of the craziest weeks of my life.  South Florida was hit with a hurricane last week, flooding many of the main streets in Port St. Lucie.  People were stranded from their cars--couldn't get home.  We had 2 days off from work because of this.  On that Wednesday, my roommates and I moved into a new house.  That Saturday, I took on one of the craziest freelance projects (deadline-wise) I have ever been involved in and ALSO managed to unpack my new house.  On Tuesday, all the employees at Digital Domain Tradition Studios were told that we were having financial issues, but we would be OK.  They told us that they wouldn't have made a press release if they hadn't found a solution to the problem. This morning, we were all told to pack up our things and head out the door.  All 300+ of us.  A very, very sad day for animation.

It could be worse, though.  I'm healthy.  I'm generally pretty happy despite all of this.  I get to spend more time on my personal work now, and am looking forward to seeing my family for an extended period of time.  (And being an only child for the first time in 21 years--my parents are no longer empty nesters! Haha!)
