Okay, so I decided to start a blog. I know, I'm late to the game, but life has been exciting and busy over the last few years and I feel I'm finally able to do something like this.
I started Animation Mentor with two of my best friends Shawn Kelly and Carlos Baena. It has been an amazing journey thus far. We just graduated our first class and the success has been outstanding. Student's have gone on to get jobs at Industrial Light & Magic, DreamWorks, Sony, Blue Sky, Bungie and tons of others!!! We're now able to see the entire program for the very first time in its entirety and see where the areas of improvement can be made. We're excited as the alumni and students play a HUGE role in making the school better and they care as much as we do to make it a great place to learn.
I'm so proud of the company we have built. Every person involved is truly dedicated to helping our students succeed and it shows in the enthusiasm of anyone who comes into contact with it.
I don't want this blog to be an advertisement for Animation Mentor, but it's really what my life has been about for the last 4 years and it's something very deep and personal to me so I wanted my first post to be about it.
I'll keep it short and sweet for the first one. It's great to have a place that is easy to update and post comments, thoughts and anything else I'm thinking about.
