About

MY BACKGROUND

I grew up as a self-taught artist without formal training, but with my extensive portfolio was accepted into the animation program at Sheridan College in1987.  After just a year at school, I was hired by Sullivan Bluth Studios in Ireland as an in-between artist.  Hungry for more education, I returned to Sheridan College for a second year, only to be hired again at Richard Williams studio in London as an apprentice on "WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT" and Williams' assistant animator on "THIEF AND THE COBBLER."  It was a tremendous learning experience, and I was ultimately promoted to a full-fledged animator at the studio.

After several years working in Europe at studios like Gerhard Hahn in Germany and A-films in Denmark, I moved to Los Angeles in 1993 to work as a story board artist on the first season of Sonic the Hedgehog, and rolled back into animation again after that.

I successfully made the transition to from 2D to CGI on "STUART LITTLE 2" in 2001, and since that time have worked non-stop at animation/VFX studios in Los Angeles.
