I grew up in Vancouver, WA (just north of Portland, OR). Vancouver is a pretty cool town, but there wasn't a ton of animation going on. I worked a lot of lame jobs, burnt some bridges, and eventually got a gig in Seattle working on video games.

I jumped on the Animation Mentor bandwagon as soon as I could. While there, I met some incredible people, and learned as much as I could from the best.

After finishing school, I spent a destructive amount of time preparing my reel, but eventually lined up an interview.

Now I'm an animator at Sony Pictures Imageworks in Albuquerque, New Mexico working on Green Lantern. In my free time, I've been camping, I've gone to the Balloon Fiesta, and this Tuesday I got into a knife fight.
