Nicholas Howard

Greetings my name is Nicholas Howard I am a 2D Animation Student here at MATC. I am graduating this Spring and am looking forward to further honing my skills in this industry. I have three and a half years’ experience with Photoshop and a year of experience with After Effects. During my time here I have found a passion for After Effects and plan on mastering the tool. I have always had the goal of whatever I do in life, to do it to my best abilities and to not stop until I have work I can be proud of.
