I was born and raised in San Francisco, California. Graduated from the Art Institute of California – San Francisco with a Bachelors of Science in Visual and Game Programming. This was an especially great four years of my life, learning directly from instructors from ILM, Pixar, Electronic Arts, NASA, and more.
Ever since I saw the teaser trailer of Jurassic Park I knew what I wanted to do. And when Avatar began production, it was my chance to do it. Being part of the film production pipeline, especially in Animation and Visual Effects, has been a rough, sleep deprived, difficult experience. Simultaneously it has been the most rewarding part of my life.
