What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I haven’t had a job any crazier than in animation except for selling(or to be more precise, not selling) ugly t-shirts to the audience of the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. But that more sucked than was crazy and was after I got into and left out of the animation industry. I’m not really sure what crazy means. I’ve always interpreted crazy as ‘knowing the difference between right and wrong, but not caring. Being that I’m a both moral and spiritual person, I always care about right and wrong so I wouldn’t participate in a crazy job.

I was a construction worker right after highschool. I delivered supplies to job sites and got to know some cool characters. Made mistakes and got kicked around.

You carve into paper.I was also a caricature artist at six flags but that’s another story…0_0

hmmmm Right now I am polishing “turds” as it were. My Teacher told me that to make it in this industry you have to give you best even when the projects aren’t great but the people I worked with taught me a lot and I am grateful for every bit of work they throw at me esp being in the USA at this time… Recessionnn…………..~~~~~ but to answer your question, I was very proud of my 2009 year film in Calarts. It got me into the Producer’s Show and it wasn’t about cute bunnies making friends. It was about PTSD and the Vietnam Veteran. Deep things…
