Crank It and Go Full Screen - New Demo Reel is Here!

I'm usually a little apprehensive about personal demo reels, since a lot of what I work on is so collaborative. It's always strange taking full credit for something that a team of awesome and talented people helped put together. But alas, when Adam Vadnais tells you that if you're on the hunt for work, you need a reel - - dagnabbit, you listen. So, if you'd like a quick primer on the diverse work that I've had the privilege of completing in about three minutes, get ready because you're in luck!
