Hello all, my name is Will and I'm a freelance Animator, Rigger, and a Visual Development artist. I design characters and environments traditionally or CG. I’ve been trained by some the world’s best artists. Whether the person needs help in a 2D software like Photoshop, or Illustrator to something more advanced like 3D software like Maya or 3DS Max, I’m the guy to go to. I’ve worked on many titles; one of the biggest titles so far I’ve worked on was on Tomb Raider. I’m currently a Teacher’s Assistant for the “Life” and “Anatomy” classes.

For the past year or so I’ve been helping teach several “Life” and “Anatomy” classes in a room full of 40 or more students per quarter, per class. At the end of the day, anyone can draw a beautiful picture with a smiley face on it but, if there is no understanding of what is being represented, there is no art. My job would be to help the students in understanding form follows function. Once a student can understands form and function a program such as Illustrator, Photoshop, and Maya becomes very easier for manipulate into whatever he/she desires. I’m currently in my few last days of graduation from school at the Art Institute of Los Angeles and earning my Bachelor’s degree.
I only ask a few things of my students and, that is to always keep progressing in their own art. Never get frustrated if you don’t understand something at first, realize that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Finally, and most importantly, you must always have a high level of professionalism and respect.

Adobe Illustrator

For the past 6 years I've have trained intensely in Illustrator. I use it for anything that's possible. Vectors are awesome.

Adobe Photoshop

For the past 6 years, I've have trained intensely in Photoshop to do anything possible in it. I understand Photoshop extremely well.

American History

I am well-verse in American history. Most importantly I know that people don't learn unless you can give them a reason to love what they're learning. History is alive and to know where we're going as a civilization we must know where we been. While in school I was the best in advanced college level courses. I can teach anything from American history to Art history and even world history. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree. I'm a story teller and History is the best place to get any story.

Drawing

I've been drawing (traditionally and digitally) for the past 10 years. I'm currently finishing up my degree in Animation & Media arts. I'm a TA for "Anatomy" as well as "Life and Gesture" classes.

Film

Hello, I graduated from the Art institute of Los Angeles where I got my bachelor's degree in Animation. Since then I have directed and worked on a variety of films and games.

General Computer

Since I was a child, I have always been surrounded by Computers. I know a computer from the inside out. When I was studying at school, I helped pay my way through college by becoming a computer tech. I was a tech for three years and have fixed hundreds of computers. I studied computer animation and have worked with a diverse variety of software.

Maya

I'm in Animation and media Arts at the Art Institute of Los Angeles. I've been working in maya for the past 5 years and professionally in the industry for the past 2 years. I've worked in such companies as "Frame Machine," "Red Giant" and many more. I can rig, light, model, uv, animate, and some dynamics.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Windows operating system since '95. I know my way around any window system like the back of my hand. When I was in school I paid my way through college by being a computer technician. I have fixed hundreds of computers.

Painting

I am finishing up my degree at The Art Institute of Los Angeles. I have been painting for the past 10. Although in the past 5 I've been painting digitally.

Social Studies

Social Studies is my bread and butter. When I was in school, I tutored many of peers that were failing and was able to get there grade to go up. Most importantly I know that people don't learn unless you can give them a reason to love what they're learning. History is alive and to know where we're going as a civilization we must know where we been. While in school I was the best in advanced college level courses. I can teach anything from American history to Art history and even world history. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree. I'm a story teller and in studying our society we can gather the best place to get any story.
