welcome to the broken tangent

I have been working in the Entertainment & Video Games industry for over fifteen years. I earned a B.S. in computer science from The Art Institute of California - Orange County, with a focus on media arts and animation in 2003. I've been lucky enough to work on beautifully detailed pre-rendered movies like Diablo 3. To fast paced video games like Heroes of the Storm. It's my goal on this website to take the knowledge I’ve learned to hopefully inspire and give a deeper insight into this art medium called: "Animation".

My vision is that this website will become an animation labyrinth filled with professional and personal works. Along with general articles about the industry and behind the scenes write ups and videos about the animation process. We also have “The Broken Tangent Animation Podcast” which is adding another layer of wonderful animation knowledge. In the podcast we interview other professionals in the industry and hear their story on how they made it into their career. 

Please browse around and enjoy!
