QuickTime Version (26MB)
Spec board/reel of my work from 2009, including projects currently in production. I consider myself a VFX generalist with a strong focus on animation. I am very interested in utilizing techniques often reserved only for high-end visual effects for more traditional 2d/3d animation hybrids. Integrating good design with technology in ways it hasn’t been done before.

Many of these projects were group efforts, if you would like to know more about my specific involvement on any project take a look at the project section of my site or feel free to ask.
I always have a number of personal projects in progress that you can find hints of all around my site. Anyone that would like more information about any of these can simply ask and I will be happy to provide any of the technical or creative details.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments! A lot of this work will be appearing in full form in upcoming and current projects or on my next reel and some of these assets may soon be available on this site.
Thanks for watching!
