Grown in Colorado, raised in Los Angeles. I started in visual effects as an intern at SPI in '95, continued there for three years, worked in the dot com crazy storm until the wave crashed, took my useless stock options and returned to CG working for my friends Todd Perry and Jennifer Champain at Max Ink Cafe, moved on to Look Effects, freelanced on some indie films ( it was a dry summer of regret), moved on to Motion Theory for my first taste of commercials, where I learned to drink from a fire hose and carry several fire extinguishers. Now I'm enjoying a long turn (eight years as of this August) at A52 / Rock Paper Scissors. These folks are worth driving from Silverlake to Santa Monica on a daily basis. Great people and great talent.
