Jon has been working in the entertainment industry for the past 20 years. 13 of those years were at The Walt Disney Animation Studio where he was the Environment Modeling Supervisor on Frozen, Zootopia, and Wreck-it Ralph 2. Most recently, he was Head of Environments on two theme park rides (Zootopia ride for Disneyland Shanghai and the Peter Pan ride for Disneyland Tokyo Sea) and an episodic show for Disney+. His other credits include: Tangled, Wreck-it Ralph, Ralph Breaks the Internet, The Princess and the Frog, Zootopia, and The Simpsons Movie, to name a few!
Jon is always amazed that starting from a simple polygonal cube, you can create an entire universe, and he is excited to share his knowledge and years of experience with the next generation of artists.
