Toy Giraffe Animation
This is some development animation for the toy giraffe that was featured in Almost Human. When activated, the futuristic toy comes to life and animates somewhat like a real, living giraffe. The toy does not have any visible joints or mechanisms. At this stage, I was responsible only for the animation.



Student Demo Reel 2012
Student demo reel featuring turn-tables of the aircraft and armored personnel carrier.



Original Kowloon Alley
This is the original version of my student work. It lacks post-processing except for minor contrast adjustments and ambient occlusion. The scene was created in Maya and rendered with mental ray. Importance sampling with irradiance particles was used instead of Global Illumination and Final Gather. It was featured in Ceiga, Issue 14 page 64.



Tropical Excursion: Portfolio 2010
This is the finished eight-month project for an independent study in animation at Shawnee Mission West High School. I entered the Research and Development Forum and received an Award of Distinction, a Technology Showcase award, and the Regnier Award (the highest available award). Although the quality of this work is dull in comparison with my more current work, this project fueled my interest in pursuing a degree.
