I'm a stop-motion director, animator, and co-owner of an animation studio in Toronto called Stop Motion Department. My professional animation experience includes animating and set-supervising on The Little Prince (2015), TV series work at Cuppa Coffee Studiosshort films, and commercial work.

My two short films are both online, "The Fox and the Chickadee" (2012) and "Birdlime" (2017).

"I was wondering about the cage and accessing the puppet...amazing registration. I assumed it was a layer. You gave that funny bird quite a personality. I love the simplicity of design and the colors as well."

Birdlime - short film

After finishing this film back in 2017, and playing in many film festivals, it's finally time to premiere online. So here it is! This was my second full short film that I wrote/directed/lit, and the first that I animated fully. It's also much longer than my previous film, which was a challenge to keep the pace up and hold attention for over 10 minutes.
