My mission statement as a CG artist and content creator :


I relish technical challenges and creative problem-solving in a team setting, and am always excited to explore new technology and interactive experiences.  I believe it's the art we create, the stories we tell, the worlds we build, that are the most important goals to deliver for audiences and users.

As the realms of filmmaking and games converge, it is pursuing great ideas and keeping a strong artistic vision - supported but not subverted by the cutting edge of technology - which will drive us to offer the best possible product and experience.



More than a decade of experience at some of the top VFX and animation studios around the world.

Available for contract, consulting, or freelance production and post-production work.
Ready to contribute to your game, website, or mobile app.
