Welcome to my Blog

Welcome to my personal animation blog. In addition to animating for film and games, I also teach animation to students ranging from high school to the university graduate degree level.

I use blogger with all of the classes I teach: it's a place where students can access information, connect with fellow students and ask questions outside of the classroom. I've added a few tutorials and educational lesson plans that I've created in the past to show some examples of my work in this space. You can peruse this material by clicking on the linked headings below:

These 'AE' links (Outline, Clown and AnimJam) are from my high school 'Art Experience' summer camp, these '3dFOA' links (Live Ball and Pendulum) are exercises from my Fundamentals of Animation class and this 'RCA' (under construction) is a tutorial in layered animation workflow from my Advanced Realistic Creature Animation class. This 'DEMO' page is material I assembled to do a teaching demo during my job interview at Fanshawe College on Aug 11th 2017.

Feel free to share and link to these pages but no derivative works please. Contact me anytime if you have questions about the content. I will answer as my quickly as my time and schedule allows.

At the lower right hand side of this page, you'll see shortcuts to my profile on LinkedIn, my video page on Vimeo and my CV. On my Vimeo page, you'll find some tutorial videos I created to teach some of the more technical aspects of 3d animation.

Thanks for coming to visit and have a great day!
