I have an update! I've moved to the Bay Area! I've been spending the past year working on something very special with some amazingly talented folks at Sledgehammer Games, and I'm very excited to show you a little bit of what I've been doing...

 Wow! Spooky! Some of my work is up there, too! It's been a huge honor working on this project, and an absolute blast animating these ghoulish beasts. I can't wait for November 3rd to show y'all more!

Hello! Here's a quick update on what I've been working on! I recently worked with the folks down at SuperGenius on the new Skylanders: Imaginators! I worked on a few different shots while I was down there, but here's something I can really call my own:

I had a lot of fun with this, and working with some insanely talented folks at SuperGenius! Definitely putting this at the front of my next reel.

Happy New Year! It has been far too long since I paid attention to the actual blog portion of my site. First off, here's my latest little animation I did:

I had fun with this! It's been a while since I've done a proper dialogue hand-keyed animation.

I've also been trying new things, like stop-motion! I helped out a buddy with some shots for a documentary and had a blast with it. It took a few weeks, but I learned a lot! There's something very satisfying about the physicality of it all, and breathing life into objects that would just on the shelf otherwise.

2016 is going to hold some more challenges, both as a professional and as an artist. I wanna meet them head-on, and really grow in both aspects. So here's to a new year y'all!

It's PAX Weekend! But that doesn't mean you can't get some more animation goodness. Here's a thing I've been working on.

Forward thinkin'

Howdy hey! Another long hiatus means I was pretty busy with work stuff. Fear not, however, because I've been hard at work at some new stuff! Here's a taste

Almost there!

Busy busy busy! Work has been keeping me tied up as of late (3 different games in the past 6 months!) but I try to find the time to keep working on this little ditty. Added a second character and polished the sylvari quite a bit. Still needs some more work but it's getting there!
