ExperienceI have been involved in the entertainment industry for over twenty-five years working in film,
television, theater, theme parks, virtual worlds, and video games.

I started my career as a puppeteer and puppet maker at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta,

In 1985 I headed to Industrial Light and Magic in Marin County, California where I spent the next 17
years working in various roles as puppeteer and mold maker in the “Creature Shop”, a project
supervisor and modeler in the Model Shop, and then transitioning in the 1990’s to a Digital Modeler
and Supervisor for the Computer Graphics Department.

In 2002 I joined Walt Disney Feature Animation, working at the Florida and Burbank Studios as CG
Supervisor and as a Story Visualization Artist.

From 2006 until 2009 I worked as a Principal 3D Artist, 3D Concept Artist, and Pre-visualization
Artist and Editor at Stormfront Studios and Virtual Space Entertainment in Marin County.

Since mid-2008 I have been working as an independent Visual Effects Supervisor specializing in low
cost/high quality visual effects for films, music videos and web projects. In that time I have
delivered over 500 visual effects shots.
