I spent the better part of 20 years writing, recording and touring as a musician. Somewhere in there I began to make a living producing promotional art for members of the Chicago music scene. My rediscovery of animation happened while on that path, and it made me divert my course indefinitely.
After a few years animating in the Chicago advertising market, I moved to LA to begin working for DreamWorks Animation – animating on feature film titles such as: "Monsters Vs. Aliens", "Shrek Forever After", "Megamind", "How to Train Your Dragon: The Gift of the Night Fury", "Kung Fu Panda 2", and "Puss in Boots" – as well as for Blue Sky Studios on "The Peanuts Movie" and Google Spotlight Stories "Pearl" directed by Oscar winning director Patrick Osborne ("Feast").
Now, after having the opportunity to create performances for worldwide blockbusters, I'm deciding to dedicate my abilities to producing animation for education (Crackerbox Studio
) and educating animators (SplatFrog, and iAnimate Workshops
). So far so good... :)
