I'm a CG Generalist, Compositor and VFX Supervisor with 20+ years of experience in film visual effects and animation, video games, television and commercials. I've held Senior TD, CG Supervisor & Creative Lead positions most of my career, from A-list studios to tiny, independent productions but I also do fantastic work on the box as a CG Generalist, Lighter and Compositor. I love the combination of creativity and technology represented in animation and visual effects, and I enjoy delving alongside other talented creatives working together to solve creative challenges and produce breath-taking work for a wide audience.
