About Dan

My history in the area of teaching computer animation filmmaking and design has developed through teaching at both Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and more recently, The Art Institute of Colorado, among other schools. This is in addition to my experience running my own animation business. I have practical experience passing on my knowledge in a way that takes into account the individuals learning style but emphasizes problem solving in the context of good story-telling.

My method would be to discuss student needs, develop and present demonstrations of relevant subject matter in the appropriate software. Then students would try to duplicate the process with my support when the student encounters difficulty.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Autodesk Maya

I have been teaching and using Maya for 3D animation for 15 years. I presently teach Maya at the Colorado Institute of Art as an Adjunct Instructor and have been doing that for the last 3 years. Prior to that I was the director of the 2D & 3D animation programs at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. Additionally I have run my own business since the early 1990s designing and animating 3D for scientific visualization, litigation, education and entertainment.
