I got my computer graphics start in the early nineties
for such companies as AT@T and Ogilvy and Mather
in interactive multimedia.
However my interests in traditional drawing and
storytelling led me to spend 8 years at Walt Disney
Feature Animation working as a character animator
on 6 award winning Disney feature animated films
including “Mulan”, “Lilo and Stitch” and “Brother Bear."
I freelanced as a concept artist for Walt Disney
Imagineering while teaching traditional animation
and story at Ringling School of Art and Design.
With the birth of my first of two daughters I ended up
back in interactive, first as a concept artist and later
as an associate art director for Electronic Arts on 7 AA
and AAA sports titles totaling over 6 million units sold
on such titles as “NASCAR 2006: Chase for the Cup”,
“Madden 2006”, and “Tiger Woods PGA Tour
I’ve been teaching at Full Sail in the CA division
since March 2009.
