About Me

Animator. Artist. Storyteller. 

Since my early 20's, I've had the privilege of being mentored by talented artists, animators  and arts educators. I humble myself to the collaborative experience and encourage others to drive their creative passions so that they may paint their stories for everyone to enjoy and experience. 

I have spent an amazing career in Arts Education, specifically in animation, where I was able to teach all age learners and work with amazing animation industry talent. Every year I was able to make films with kids, teens and adults while working alongside talented animation students from my Alma Mater Cal Arts.

It was time for me to leave the education field so that I may study 3d animation. At the same time I was earning an income by joining a union working in construction where I took part in building high rise structures in the heart of San Francisco!  That was an awesome experience. 

I am an Artist, Animator, Skater, Surfer, Gamer, Husband & Father. I love every moment of my creative life!
