I am a 10-year veteran of this crazy biz, and have a dozen or so years of acting training. I left university part way through my acting major because I saw Toy Story
and i knew that this would be the best acting gig EVER. :) So I had to switch gears (and schools), and go through an art major, followed up by graduate education in Computer Animation at Sheridan College.
Since I got into animation, I have worked on games, commercials, television shows, dvd movies, feature films, and mentoring at Animation Mentor.
