Hello, I’m Hat.

Or you can call me Charlie. I’m not Hat (the character) but most people call me that anyways. Whichever is easier for you.

I’m a full time 2D technical animator. My professional experience includes work on:

  • LEGO® Monkie Kid™
  • Rise of the TMNT
  • Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

You probably know me for LiteralHat related stuff though, and thus I welcome you with love to this website of my passion.
