I started life like most humans, covered in placenta and with minimal motor skills. It was not long before I learned how to use both hands and feet as a groove-oriented drummer in a variety of rock bands. Upon standing fully erect, I attended a fine art school and received my B.F.A. Years later someone invented the Internet and then another person invented Flash. Riding on the coat tails of these two individuals, I was able to carve a unique niche for myself using both tools. My self-taught animation experiments were the stepping stones of what has become a regular source of income.
