Originally a Chicago native, I started working on live action shorts, commercials, music videos and films in Chicago. I moved to NYC in late August 2000 working for Nickelodeon Digital Animation Studios. My background includes animating 70+ sequences on Emmy nominated shows with Nick Jr. (including Little Bill, Blues Clues, Wonder Pets, and Team UmiZoomi) and hands-on experience supervising internal and external teams of 2D and 3D artists. In my time in NYC I've also worked with other comedians on animation projects, most notably NYC SketchFest openings. Right before one of the coldest NYC winters, I moved to Los Angeles early December 2013 for a Sr Animator position with Disney Imagicademy animating educational interactive games for iOS & Android. Throughout the course of my career, I have enjoyed many opportunities to hone my ability to work well independently as well as favorably in team environments. I embrace new challenges and enjoy exploring this mysterious city!
