I enjoy my job because it involves so many creative elements: movies, computers, photography, art and sometimes music. I feel fortunate that I get paid to do something that I love, and this makes the long hours during production much more enjoyable. My talents include an artistic eye combined with technical skills to produce photo-realistic imagery.
Credited Projects Include: Feature Films, HD Television, and Commercials.
I am a VES member and an active member of the visual effects community. I have been on Oscar and VES award winning FX teams, such as "Hugo" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
I am knowledgeable of the digital pipeline, and I am proficient with high-end software such as Nuke, Fusion, After Effects Maya, and Flame.
Finally, I earned a master's degree in visual effects and animation, with an emphasis on digital compositing. My master's degree is a good foundation, but the majority of my expertise has been acquired through years of on-the-job commercial and feature-film production experience.
