Born and raised in Los Angeles CA, I was captivated by Hollywood blockbusters and effects driven films in the early 90's and It created a passion for the work I do now. Around 1999, I was introduced to software such as Photoshop and Lightwave, which kick started my interest in computer graphics.
I currently work as a senior artist the film industry with 5 years of professional experience. My focus in matte painting and environments has opened my skills within the 2D and 3D space, and allows me to solve problems with a creative mindset
I graduated from the Academy of Art in San Francisco with a focus on Animation and VFX. I apply my experience with technology, art, and nature to visual effects.
