About Me

Hi! My name is Tammy. I’m a geeky artist-tech manticore for animation, games, and web living life one drawing at a time in sunny Burbank. I’m a lover of owls, sharks, dinosaurs, and Han Solo.

I have over 20 years of experience in multimedia design and a strong love of animation & interactive media. When I’m not attempting to curry favor with our future robot overlords, I spend my free time pondering such important life questions such as “Who would win in a fight? Batman or Superman?” and “What is the average airspeed of an unladen swallow?

I’m told I have a quick wit and good sense of humor, which is true if by “sense of humor”, they meant “inability to rationalize my terrorizing fear of chewing gum”.
