Back On My Feet

I graduated college in August 2013 as Valedictorian, Advanced Achiever, and $90k in debt. Over the course of 2 years, I worked on 1 infomercial at one studio, 4 featured films at another studio, and currently working on a project for another studio. Also to make ends meet, I've worked part-time at a theme park, and drive for Lyft in-between projects. Over the course of 2 years, after payments of loans, bills, added interest, credit cards, and a car, I am currently $110k in debt.

I have been able to pay rent and have food to eat these past 2 years, but this December, it has turned into 2 car wrecks, lost my job at the theme park, and freelancing not paying me fairly. With the lack of time to create new work, any job searching over the years has ended up with little interest in hiring.

I am raising money to keep my bills paid over the next 3-4 months while I spend time to create a new animation reel, reworking old content and creating new content, to impress for the next job search, and for car repairs so I can drive again.

I would really appreciate the help to get my life back on track. If a donation is too much, sharing my page to friends, families, and companies interested in hiring me would be just as helpful. Thank you for taking time to hear my story.
