“Making mistakes is just
learning something new.”
H ey! I’m Andrew, an Animator, Interactive UX/UI Designer, Video Producer/Editor, and Singer.
I am a lover of movies, music, technology, Pixar style animations, user friendly UI, and carefully thought out visual storytelling. I like to stay organized, detail oriented, and I’m always trying to think differently and go beyond what is expected of me. When it comes to my skills, I regularly learn new things on my own. I think it’s important to remain well rounded and explore what you don’t already know. This helps me to easily adapt to new technology and tools.
With over 8 1/2 years of experience in the marketing and entertainment industries, my current career objective is to fill the role of an Animator, Editor/Producer, Art Director, Designer, or a similar position.
When I’m not basking in the glow of the computer you can find me singing bass in a barbershop chorus, traveling to exotic places of the world, riding my Boosted Board, and over analyzing my favorite films, movie trailers, and TV shows.
