I am an Irish born, Canadian animator and Illustrator, and an enthusiast of all things that involve drawing and model making. I graduated from the Sheridan College animation program in 2005 and have been working in the animation industry for over 10 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 for a masters in Illustration I’m persuing, in an attempt to document my thoughts on all things relating to the digital arts, storytelling, and Canadian myths and legends. I hope this journey will eventually involve the creation of a of a children’s book, and I invite you to join me as I navigate through this process, by following this blog.
