"As a TRA I manage the LSF rendering software and monitor the render farm as well as dealing with queue managing issues and any artist questions or problems they might have with the rendering systems or shot submissions… I realized that the job was never done until the client approved. Even when I am not working, I am either reading Maya books, practicing my animation skills, or studying my favorite animator’s work, frame by frame for hours on end. If I could describe myself in one word it would be "determined.” In addition to studying books, I study life, in hopes of tying together observation and experience with skill and knowledge, making me an exemplary animator."
