My Bio
I was born and raised in the New England area and have been drawing for as long as I can remember. Art is my passion and I constantly strive to teach myself new methods and styles. In addition I have been watching films for most of my life. This became an obsession around the year 2004 and I embarked on the quest to try my hand at animation. Since then I have contributed animation to some independent film projects and I currently have a few new assignments in the works.

Desert Mirage (Live-Action/Animation Hybrid)
If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen me posting about Desert Mirage for awhile now. It’s a feature-film directed by Michael Fredianelli that I’ve taken up animation duties on together with a team of skilled artists. It’s easily the most ambitious project I’ve become involved with due to the sophistication and amount of animation required. We’ve made a lot of progress bringing to life the movie’s cartoon cast (voiced almost entirely by the talented Jeremy Koerner!) and have about 70% of the film’s animation completed in its rough form. However to continue achieving the type of q

The VFX Debacle
I sympathize with the VFX and 3D animation community and their recent plight, but something about the whole thing doesn't sit right with me. The 2D animation business in the US has gone through much harder times (with so much of the work in the field outsourced to other countries for years now). I don't think there was ever this much outcry and support for the 2D community even when they've essentially been dumped on and pissed on for years. Almost seems like another instance of the so-called "animation age ghetto" playing out again. People seem only to care now because they are realizing that their beloved (somehow deemed less for kids) supe
