Dynamic creative leader with an eye for technical perfection. My experience bridges the gap between practical and CG FX in a career that spans over two decades. As a pivotal team lead on national commercial campaigns and acclaimed blockbuster films including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Academy Award-winners Life of Pi and Peter Jackson’s King Kong, I bring years of leadership and artistry to every production. I’m a life-long learner and I continue to push the envelope with the latest rendering techniques. As a creative technical director my specialties include digital sets, virtual lighting, compositing, and environmental FX. The following represents a selected overview of my credits from 2015-2023.
