About

Currently working as a Character Modeler for DreamWorks Animation helping to develop new animated TV shows for Netflix. Prior to DreamWorks I spent over 4 years as Look Development Artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios where I worked on such films as Zootopia, Moana, Inner Workings and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck it Ralph 2. I've been a part of the entertainment industry with experience in film, television, commercials and collectible toys since 2013 after graduating from Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood, CA.
