I was a child prodigy artist. I started actual drawing when I was 4 years old, and scribbled on virtually everything since I was 2. I was self taught, then I began winning scholarships & awards, and was in school programs for gifted children. (For which I was often brutally attacked & bullied.)
I had scholarships to attend college art classes since middle school, and attended college animation classes at the U-ARTS in Philadelphia since I was at least a Junior while in high school. While in high school I also studied analogue "Advertising, Art, and Design" (Graphic Art), Analogue "Printing" (With Photography & Developing, Plate Making, Presses, Typography, etc.), and I also earned a diploma in "Environmental Sciences". (So, if you DARE to come at me with your Global Warming Denial NONSENSE WITHOUT having an actual education in the subject, I'll come down so fast on you, you will be hurting for days! Our class was THE affiliate for Al Gore, hand picked, and my classmates went to THE "Earth Summit" in Helsinki in 1998.) Oh, and I can talk some serious science!
I graduated from The Art Institute of Philadelphia Majoring in Computer Animation and specializing in Traditional Cinematic Animation, as well as studied film & video, both analogue & nonlinear digital.
I worked on Projects for HBO Family, Nick Jr., Noggin, and PBS in Philadelphia/Chestnut Hill at "Animation Stew".
I have also worked as a digital colorist assistant at "Top Cow" (Image Comics) in Century City California (near Hollywood & Beverly Hills).
I am also self taught in German (but, it's rusty). And, I also can speak Mandarin Chinese, and some Pekingese (Beijing local dialect Chinese) and have lived in China multiple times. I personally am very self critical, and I don't think my Chinese is very good, but I can certainly speak Chinese because my in-laws are all Chinese and don't speak English.
I have currently taken an interest in preforming arts, most especially Belly Dance, and I still regularly practice in, often daily. I am a student of Bellydance Super Star Zoe Jakes and others, and aspire to study with many other teachers.
I also like: yoga, meditation, Taiji Chuan, Taiji Jianzi, Qigung.
I've taken an interest in sewing again, and have created many costumes, and fashion/clothing.
And, I have a DEEP passionate enthusiasm for TECHNO music. I'm very interested in audio engineering, DJ Mixing, and old school techno: Eurodance HI-NRG, Rave, Hardcore, Happy Hardcore, Dubstep, Acid, House Music, and many vintage German & European Hardcore music.
I very much like new digital technology. However, I'm super psyched about vintage synthesizers, especially the ever coveted vintage Japanese ROLAND TB-303 (Authentic ACID SOUND)!
And, I love film, video, television, and YouTube!
But, I also like photography! I LOVE vintage analogue cameras!
Yet, I also love the new digital! I have a new digital camera now! I LOVE it!!!! I like experimenting!
Oh, I'm also a Girl Scout leader, and an activist.
