Freelance animator and screencaster
I have spent several years learning different kinds of software while freelancing personal and commercial projects. Along the way I have collected a bunch of useful knowledge that can be translated into engaging video tutorials. So while I continue to create zany animated adventures, I want to share with you what I have learned. 
I have worked for several companies over the years creating eLearning content. Some of these include: Smith Micro, Virtual Training Company, Packt Publishing, Train Simple and Pluralsight. 
My animation is freelance based and isn’t as well known as my eLearning content. I have a few animation projects I currently have my hands in. In addition, I work for others who need animation assistance.
