Introduction Since I was a kid, nothing has fueled my passion more than the movies. I will watch even the worst kind and find something to love about them! Knowing that, it is no wonder that I gravitated into a career of making movies. I am currently an animator at Dreamworks Animation S.K.G. Since my start in this industry in 2002, I have had the pleasure to work on a wide variety of films from pre-vis to visual effects animation to my beloved character animation! My list of credits include films such as "How to Train Your Dragon", "Puss In Boots", "Megamind", "Bolt", "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", & "Sky Captain & The World of Tomorrow". My plan as an animator is simple: Keep learning, keep growing, and keep loving what I do everyday. It has worked out pretty well so far.
Interests my wife, my daughter and son, my dogs, animation, visual effects, film making, S.C.U.B.A. diving, playing the piano for fun... but not in a band... bands are too much work.
Favorite Movies So many movies... I FREAKIN' LOVE MOVIES!!! Guilty pleasures and total classics... Die Hard I, Jaws, Big Trouble in Little China, Mystery Men, Braveheart, The Big Lebouwski, Predator, Shawshank Redemption, Shawn of the Dead, The Incredibles, I will add more later. So so many...
Favorite Music AC/DC in a big way. Mostly anything from the 70's and 80's that enduces rocking out.
Favorite Books Not a whole lot of time to read, but I love short sci-fi horror stories by Phillip K. Dick, Richard Matheson, and Stephen King. "About the Author" by John Colapinto also a really great novel and gets better each time I pick it up.
