I was born and raised in Singapore and always loved drawing in my textbooks. The road to Animation as a Career was however pretty long for me…  I didn’t know what I was going to do for the longest time and was even studying Business Administration in a Polytechnic in Singapore up till my National Service(Army). Fortunately my best friend suggested looking into the art in websites and even Computer Graphics but Singapore at that time didn’t have many schools which offered courses in Animation or Computer Graphics.

Fortunately for me, my parents were able to send me to San Francisco to study Art in The Academy of Art University. And it was here I fell in love with Animation after having taking classes taught by Pixar Animators.

And so… I wound up here in Bluesky Studios (my very first Job out of School) after graduating.
