I'm Erik, a passionate character animator currently living in Texas. I grew up in a supportive household — my parents allowed me to pursue any wild dream I concocted (and trust me, I had some wild ones). Perhaps it's no surprise that I wanted to make a living in the arts. I graduated, with distinction, from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Graphics Technology. Shortly thereafter, I enrolled at Animation Mentor. It was, by far, one of the best decisions I had ever made. Upon completion of the program, I knew I wanted to continue learning, so I signed up for a single workshop at iAnimate.net.
I have a passion for all forms of storytelling. Directly impacting people on an emotional level pushes me to keep learning and perfecting my craft.
When I'm not animating, you can find me listening to music, watching tv/movies, supporting Liverpool FC, or sipping on an energy drink.
