Head of Layout | Scene Layout Supervisor

Final Layout Supervisor | Job Lead TD

Animation is an elegant and emotional art form that can impact the audience in ways live action movies cannot. Expressive and immersive in storytelling, the medium is also a complex and challenging method of creating films.

I've had the good fortune to work at many amazing studios: Walt Disney Feature Animation, DreamWorks Animation, LAIKA Entertainment, and ImageMovers Digital. Each of these studios pushed the boundaries of storytelling and production, always witha desire to create amazing stories but also a desire to build incredible studios. It was incredible to be a part of these movies and studios.

Below are some of the films I have worked on with some links to check them out.

Check out LinkedIn and IMDb for more info.
