Small update... still at Sony but in Vancouver now! Working on Hotel Transylvania:
What an awesome film to work on under Genndy Tartakovsky, definitely an animator's dream come true! The animation style in this film is very unique :).
Wow, life moves fast... I am 2 weeks into animating on my first feature, Arthur Christmas (trailer here) at Sony! It was an honor to be apart of Blur, great studio and even greater artists. I would love to come back sometime in the future, definitely a studio with vision :). Basically, Blur is a GREAT studio to work for! Anyway, I'll post up my Blur works soon with some goldfish commercials, batman arkham city trailer and star wars stuff.
As promised, my Halo Reach Reel! It was an honor to work on game of this scale for my first "pro" job.
Halo Reach just launched last week, first day sales say ~$200 million, I'd say that's a success :). In other news, I've moved down to LA and got hired on at Blur Studio! The talent here is just top-notch and the environment is really relaxed/chill so far. I'll try to post some animation that I did on Reach soon so stay tuned!
Halo Reach is coming along nicely! Look out for the Beta in early May :). It's amazing to see how far the game has come since I started here not only from an animation standpoint but the effects/models/environment.
Small update :)... now at Bungie Studios for about 3 months (Halo people) and it's been pretty awesome so far. I'm learning tons about weight and physicality! The animators here are super talented!
Wow! It's been a while... finishing up an amazing apprenticeship at Reel FX. Lots of cool and talented people at this studio :).
New site is up! Simple, clean, and spacey... ahhh, fresh.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I went to school at the University of Washington in Seattle majoring in Computer Science. After a brief stint at IBM (iBUM), I went looking for another life and found it in talking animals, aliens, and sometimes robots. I'm a completely self-taught animator. Besides the back-breaking manual labor of mouse clicking for 8 hours a day, I enjoy drawing, working out, traveling, trying new ethnic foods, new age physics, healthy eats, and spending time with friends.
