Mentor at Animation Mentor
Senior Character Animator at Ilion Animation Studios
I was born in Cambridge, Minnesota and grew up in Bayfield, Wisconsin on Lake Superior. I moved to Canada to study classical animation at Sheridan College.
Blue Sky Studios hired me in 2005 and I was lucky enough to work on Ice Age 2, Horton Hears a Who and Ice Age 3. While in New York, I became an animation mentor. In July 2008, I decided to leave NY and spent 6 months trekking the world.
Then I worked on Planet 51 at Ilion Animation Studios in Madrid.
In 2009 I spent the summer in Santa Monica on Uncharted 2. Afterwards I worked in London at Double Negative on Iron Man 2 and Paul. Then returned to Blue Sky to work on Rio. Currently I am working on Uncharted 3.
