I am a 2-D trained animator who worked in the 3-D feature film world for 18 years. I was fortunate to work on a wide range of projects over the years for some of the largest companies in the animation industry including Dreamworks, Pixar, Weta Digital and Rhythm & Hues. Some of the films I have worked on as a 3-d character animator are: Toy Story 2, Lord of the Rings, Megamind, The Madagascar films and How to Train Your Dragon. If you want to see the full list of my film credits check out my IMDB profile.
But now I want to tell stories in a different way. I first got into drawing and animation because I fell in love with the world of picture books. Artists like Bill Peet, Quintin Blake, Robert Lawson and Disney were my first sources of inspiration. Today you will find me quietly working at my desk in the redwoods, hoping to inspire children in the same way.
