About

I started the animation course dead set on learning the secrets of the intricate techniques of beautiful animation, only to be attracted by the kind of roles like storyboarding and production management that let you tip your toes a little into every puddle and stick your nose into everyone’s business. Both have elements that make them easy in theory and much more complicated in practice, like a web left each decision and either carried your weight or had you ass over teakettle later on. Managing the bigger picture is challenging but rewards you in the end like nothing else.

During my studies, I had a chance to work as a production manager for my main graduate short film project “Bus, Stop!” and as a storyboard artist for it as well as “Knitman” and some personal projects. Our 3rd year Dingle Sting project “Dingzilla” that I directed together with Tahnye Littée had the honour of winning in the Best Sting category at Animation Dingle 2021, of which I’m very proud.
