About Me

Hey, I’m Ethan, a junior Animation major with a UI/UX minor at Bradley University and I will be graduating in the spring of 2022. My interests include classic rock, graphic design, and of course animation.

I have multiple years of experience in Photoshop and Illustrator, and my photography portfolios received an AP score of 5. Some of my portfolio pieces have been used for websites and business cards, and my graphic design skills have been used for the logo and main features of Nebula, a permanent exhibit at the Peoria Riverfront Museum. I have some experience in web design, with this being the first website that I have designed.

The reason why I wanted to become an animator is that when I was a kid and found out that people made cartoons and that it was a job, I finally had an answer to that question that every kid gets asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. From that point on my love for animation grew.

Cartoon Network has always been my main inspiration for wanting to work in the industry of animated television, but I also have a strong interest in graphic design and advertising as well. I hope to work on projects of all types that can inspire others to do what they love since that is what animation did for me.
