These pages have samples of my work as an artist, animator, visual FX professional, writer and creator.
I have recently wrapped as the Head of Layout for Mandoo Pictures on a film called Rock Dog, directed by Ash Brannon of Toy Story fame, and I am now working at Riot Games on their CG Animation projects.
I previously spent almost 9 years as a Layout Supervisor and VFX artist at Sony Pictures Imageworks, generally working on animated features with a sprinkling of VFX live-action films mixed in.
Some of the films I’ve worked on include Surf’s Up, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Alice in Wonderland, Hotel Transylvania, Smurfs, Smurfs 2, and Edge of Tomorrow.
I won a 2007 ANNIE award for my work on Surf’s Up. I was the Wave Animation Lead; conceiving, designing and blocking the animation, animating all the waves, and doing all the camera work on the surfing and water related sequences for the film.
I taught FX Animation at Gnomon in Hollywood for over 8 years, which is a bit like teaching at Hogworts. Gnomon is the most renown school in the industry, and it’s a ton of fun. Check out my training DVD’s for the Gnomon Workshop, AND buy a copy if you choose to learn some Maya tricks. www.thegnomonworkshop.com
Prior to Sony I worked in Commercial/Music Video production for 10 years, eventually leading production teams and co-Directing commercials.
Thanks for visiting, hope you enjoy the work.
