I am Markham Carroll, a character animator who grew up in California with my parents, three siblings, and an uncertain number of cats. I attended Del Oro High in Loomis, where I participated in various band programs, took classes in AutoCad, and had the opportunity to start learning how to use Macromedia Flash. While my first animations relied heavily on Flash's auto-tweens, I bought an old Wacom Digitizer II tablet at a flea market, and started learning how to do hand-drawn animation. I later attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where I got my bachelor's degree of Fine Arts in animation, broadening my experience to Toon Boom and Maya, along with some programming in Python and C++.
