I started my professional career in design in 1993, working at a prestigious Investor Relations company. I created many logos, annual reports and multimedia slideshows for large publicly traded companies participating in the IPO (Initial Public Offering) market. I developed my design and animation skills and learned how to use many key software packages at this time, while helping these companies raise billions of dollars in share value.
I then learned web design and continued to advance my skills in Photoshop and After Effects. I graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and completed my grad project which was a movie trailer for a movie concept I created called "Aftermath". It combined 3D animation with hand drawn characters and will be developed further in the future potentially as a feature film or online web video series.
My current occupation is in advertising and visual effects. I have directed and produced dozens of TV commercials and social media animations for some of the largest brands in the world such as Miller Genuine Draft, Shaw Cable, Coors Light, Nutrl Vodka and White Spot Restaurants. I have produced title sequences for TV shows and movies. I draw comic books and write stories in my spare time.
I have several diplomas and degrees in Directing for Film, 3D Animation, Graphic Design and Fine Art. I have attended Vancouver Film School and the Emily Carr University. I have master level skills (over 25 years of professional experience) using Photoshop, After Effects and Maya 3D Animation software. I write, storyboard, edit and create the special effects for most of my productions.
