Animation | Motion | Cats


photoIconGreetings and Salutations!

I was born in a small town, deep in the state of Idaho and spent my early years growing up next to a gentle stream and a Union Pacific Railroad. I soon moved to the to the Beehive state, Utah, home to some of Earth’s greatest natural scenery. Growing up, I honed my agricultural skills working long, hot summer days on my Grandpa’s farm in Montana.

Later in life, I moved to Oakland California to pursue my passion for animation. In 2009 I moved from the Bay Area to the Bay State and continued my creative career as an animator and illustrator.

When I’m not working I enjoy drawing and painting whimsical characters that ooze personality and beckon adventure. You can see my artwork at everysummerlong.com
