My animation career began as a film major at Columbia College in Chicago. After Graduating with my BA, I was accepted in the Classical Animation program at the esteemed Sheridan College in Toronto. After college, I worked for a short time at a small studio on animated commercials before moving to California, where I landed my first job on an animated feature film at Bluth Studios Animation.
I worked on Troll in Central Park and Thumbelina, then moved on to Rich Studios and the film The Swan Princess. I continued to work in animation at many commercial studios, but then my love of story and
the challenge of crafting story and pictures, and my ability to contribute ideas and gags, led me down the road of storyboarding.
I have subsequently worked as a storyboard artist at Universal Studios, Warner Bros, and Hyperion on such titles as Curious George, Ozzy and Drix, Baby Looney Toons, Pinky and the Brain, and Space Jam.
I believe the greatest resource for young artists is each other. Stay in contact and relish the opportunity to network from your group. Always be open to watching and learning from each other. Stay humble.
