Animation Intern: League of Legends Champions Team

As part of Riot's internship program, I animated on a variety of champions in production from creatures, to humans, quadrupeds and bipeds, while focusing on body mechanics, strong posing and readable silhouettes from all camera angles. Developed and established new champions' personalities and styles with a team of creatives.

Director & Creator of "The Train to Qinling" Short Film

"The Train to Qinling" is an award wining short, which I've created as my thesis film at Ringling College of Art & Design (Computer Animation department).

I am responsible for all aspects from pre-production to final rendered product.

I worked with a team (composer, sound designer, sound mixer and voice actor) to form a unique whimsical vision, inspired by experiences of traveling the world and influenced by volunteer work with non-verbal children.
