I am a character animator, originally from Southern California, currently living in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I have a lifelong passion for storytelling and creating compelling emotional character performances through character animation. I am an alumnus of California College of the Arts, where I earned my BFA in Animation. I also went through the Animation Mentor Character Animation program. I have experience working in commercials, advertising, video games, and most recently, animated feature films. When I first set out to learn the craft of animation, I had dreamed of working as an animator for film. It has been a long journey to get here, but I can now say I am living out that dream, working at Sony Imageworks, where I have had the honor of working on Hotel Transylvania 2 and The Angry Birds Movie. Besides animation, I enjoy story development, sketching, dabbling in computer graphics, playing guitar, movies, music, gaming, collecting art books, billiards, riding my bike, traveling, and cooking.
