I have come from a background of on & off set visual effects supervision, compositing & project management to the world of story and ideation. I love visual effects, but all the bells & whistles are pointless without story & reason. A great visual effects shot will always look out of place if it does not complement the story; no matter how cool it looks.
I graduated from the Academy of Art University San Francisco with a BFA in Animation & Visual Effects, and the University of Technology Sydney with a Graduate Certificate in Professional Practice (IT Project Management) & have been involved on & off set with shoots ranging from commercials for fortune 100 companies and local businesses to feature films. I have worked for HBO, Tippett Studios, Elastic Creative,Westernized Productions & now First Person. I am also a member of the Visual Effects Society.
