Digital Production for Entertainment at Gnomon School of Visual Effects
I studied character and creature animation at Gnomon School of Visual Effects. My studies also encompassed the fundamentals of modeling, rigging, visual effects, and traditional drawing skills.
While at Gnomon, I co-founded the Gnomon Animation Club. I worked with school administration to bring in guest speakers with a range of backgrounds and knowledge to share. My personal passion was our monthly peer review sessions where students would come together to practice giving and receiving constructive criticism on their latest work.
