I am an Irish born, Canadian animator and Illustrator, and an enthusiast of all things that involve drawing and model making. I hold a Masters in Illustration from the University of Hertfordshire and I graduated from the Sheridan College animation program. I have been working in the animation industry for just about 15 years now, for clients such as Disney, PBS kids, Cocoa Puffs, Trix, Lucky charms and Fisher Price. I also hold a degree in Industrial design from the University of Alberta, and have worked as a designer in the exhibit/museum design industry for clients such as Sony, the Smithsonian and the NYS museum, prior to jumping into animation.
I happily reside in the Niagara region where I work as a professor in the Niagara College game development program, a job that excites me every day. I have started this blog to document my thoughts on all things relating to the digital arts, storytelling, and Canadian myths and legends.
