I have always been drawn to art and creativity. When I first stepped foot in the Art Institute of Colorado and experienced the amazingly creative atmosphere there, I was immediately captivated.
When I began pursuing my education in animation, I realized that in 3D space I could literally create anything and was hooked for life. I was taught the basics at the Art Institute but soon discovered that real learning comes from working in the field. I have a passion for shader building, lighting and rendering that led me to Hollywood and, after landing in advertising, began to hone show my skills. I have worked with some of the biggest names in the video game, movie, television and interactive industries and still relish the challenge of a new project. My biggest inspirations in life are my family and collaborating with fellow artists to create amazing products.
