Hello and welcome. I am a Freelance 3D animator / artist working in Maya. My goal and passion that's been driving me for over a decade now is simple... to bring characters to life. 

I can jump in at any point of a project and hit the ground running, weather it's pre-production, or "crunch time". If you have any questions or would like to talk about a project, contact me and I'll get back with you ASAP.

As far as my background and experience...  I graduated from Ringling School of Art & Design back in 1996 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Computer Animation.  Upon graduation I was offered a job at Dreamworks Feature animation & I accepted.  I moved out to California and worked at Dreamworks for seven years on several of their films before taking a job at Disney Feature Animation Florida .  I made the move back across the country to be back in my home state of Florida...What can I say, I just like it better over here.  After about a year at Disney Florida the company was in a state of consolidating & reorganization, and they closed their Florida animation studio.  From that point I decided to stay in Florida and started working with several small companies including Madcaplogic which I ended up working with for five years.  In this time I also started doing freelance work for companies when I could squeeze it in.  Now I am doing freelance on a fulltime basis as well as teaching Modeling, Animation, and Rigging classes.

    
 On a personal level, I live in Tampa Florida.  I'm married with two kids...ages four and six.  Outside of the animation world, I'm a big fan of Historic Homes and anything vintage.  We live in a turn of the century historic home with a nice big front porch.  As far as outdoor activities, I love surfing, stand up paddleboarding, camping, hiking, and boating.  Being in and around the water in some way is something that has always been important to me.
