My name's Dan and I'm a 2D animator and motion graphics designer. I've been animating since roughly 2010 but professional freelancing since 2015. I pride myself in my Adobe skills, considering myself proficient in Photoshop, After Effects and Animate (formally Flash). I have a keen interest in video games and in my spare time am learning to code in Game Maker Studio, while also running a YouTube channel which looks at animation in video games. I produce various pieces of animation, ranging from 2D cartoons to corporate motion graphics.
