I've been passionate about animation since I was a child, waking up early Saturday mornings to sit down in front of the TV with a giant bowl of cereal and a drawing pad to watch classic Looney Toons for hours on end. I was able to realize my dream of creating cartoons in the mid 90's in Vancouver BC, where I learned to animate traditionally on paper and cels. A few years later I made the leap to 3D and now I am creating compelling user experiences through meaningful design and motion.
I am also an Independent Animator, a gun for hire, working primarily in Maya for 3D character animation.
I grew up in the great northwest and still reside with my wife, just minutes outside of Seattle WA. Living in this area has allowed me to work on so many great projects with countless gifted and talented people.
Some favorite animated films (in no particular order)
- Secret of Nimh
- Spirited Away
- Iron Giant
- The Incredibles
- Smoked BBQ
- Watching my boy play baseball
The most gratifying part of what I do is to see people smile while watching my animation.
