About David

I am a digital artist with a passion for animation and visual effects. I possess a B.S. in Animation from Huntington University, which gives me an extensive background to teach many aspects of 3D and 2D art and animation. Additionally, I have worked as a freelance visual effects artist in a wide range of areas and mediums.

If you're looking to learn any of these exciting fields, I guarantee that you will be satisfied with my instruction. Whether you're a total beginner, or you want to push your skills further, I can tailor lessons to fit you at whatever level you're at.

I provide my students with not just a process of what buttons to push, but an understanding of the hows and whys behind the techniques.

I would be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
