Summary

Currently Supervising Animation at Rooster Teeth Productions in Austin, TX, on their long-running anime streaming series, RWBY.

Most recently animated on SCOOB! for Reel FX and WAG.

In 2019 I completed Storyboard, Layout, and Animation work on Borderlands 3, and before that I was animating and supervising on Mosley, a feature film in New Zealand (co-produced in China).

I've worked at Brazen Animation, BlueSky Studios, and Reel FX, and done contracts for several other places. I’ve dabbled in VR, games, and shorts, but most of my experience is in feature films and DTV features.

Feature credits include Scoob!, Mosley, The Book of Life, Ferdinand, Rock Dog, and I also contributed significantly to the 2010/11 Looney Tunes CG shorts series.

I also have experience as a character lead, artist mentor, lead animator and supervising animator.
