A versatile designer with a passion for creating great work.
I’m interested in light and space.
Expert knowledge of most aspects of 3d animation and design - from film to television, video games to live music visuals. I like to think I possess a keen ability to adapt to new technologies quickly as well as innovate and streamline production.
I'm a father to a boy. I'm obsessed with Walstad Aquariums, Motorcycles, Nature, Computers, Music, Documentary Film, Food, Dogs, Architecture, Travel, Learning, and on and on and on.
I approach everything I do, hopefully, as a beginner would and believe as long as I stay open to discovery and feedback I will continue to learn and grow the rest of my life.
