Jeffrey Smith

I'm an animator and illustrator born from the potato clad fields of Idaho. My wife and I currently live in Kelowna, BC where she works at a local book store and teaches ceramics and I work as a CG Animator for Bardel Entertainment.

I recently finished the Animation Mentor character animation program and even though I've only been doing animation for a couple of years now, I'm loving every bit of it. In addition to completing one animated short titled "The Violent Blue," I have partnered in startups such as Karma Tech Longboards and Indi Collective. If i'm not studying, painting or animating then i'm most likely writing, performing music, or trekking to some epic landscape with friends and family.

I want to influence people to be better and work harder. I'm a leader and a listener. There is great synergy in collaboration and I thrive best around other creatives. I've chosen animation as my medium but I am well versed in illustration, design, music and writing.

I'm really just a storyteller at heart.
