About Me

Hey friends!

The name’s Jonathan. I’m an animation instructor in Utah who with a passion for all things animation. In 2020 I wrapped up a Master’s Degree in 3D Animation and before that I studied at the University of Utah and published a game on Steam as the Lead Game Designer with a rag tag group of students. The game, Magnetic by Nature, taught me a lot, and I’ve enjoyed continuing to study the 3D pipeline. Recently I was an animator on the 3D Short Film Moon Rockz, which was an absolute blast.

I’m obsessed with bats. I write fantasy novels. I crochet amigurumi. And I’m loving life. Below is my current animation demo reel and I’ll update as I improve!
