Instructor and Animator

Hi! I'm Lucas and I make a living as an animator and director.

I'm originally from Kentucky but have lived all over the US and am currently living in Los Angeles, CA.

For the last decade, I've had the privilege of animating on movies like Avengers: Infinity War and directing short films for LEGO.

I love sharing in my courses what I learn from my pursuit in the film and game industry to help others achieve their creative and career goals....
