Speaking

I have been doing many presentations for animators and animation students over the past 12 years and always enjoy the opportunity to connect with a live audience. My presentations are usually centered on insight into the animation industry; career planning, portfolio development, creating an online pressence, finding and using inspiration, drawing for visual storytelling, and other similar lectures and seminars that offer advice in the field television animation. I’ve done talks for high school classes, animation courses, and filmmaking programs in various colleges as well.

If you are an instructor or student interested in arranging a keynote or speaking event with me at your school/college, or if your the organizer of a animation festival or conference, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
