I am a Senior Animator & Lead Previz artist with over 15 years experience. If you want it to move, & move realistically, then that's what I do. I am 'battle tested', direct & above all very professional. I specialize in short term contracts with tight deadlines. I work well under pressure & promise to add stability & energy to any team I join.
I also co-founded Zerply to help bridge the current disconnect between creative talent and creative companies. At this level, finding your next gig, or connecting with a great artist should be easy.
September 2014 - December 2017
Co-Founder & Lead Creative
It never ceases to amaze me how someone can be a world class professional artist, and still find it hard to get work. It all comes down to timing, connections and reputation. At this level, most artists maintain strong reputations, but few have extensive connections and almost none have any control over timing. It was with this in mind that we set about creating Zerply, to showcase peoples skills more effectively, increase peoples' accessibility & professional network, whilst displaying window's of opportunity for both creatives and companies alike.
I bring my 15 years of Industry experience ensuring that what we build features that service the needs of our creative community as well as the requirements of our Enterprise Customers. The best part of my day is the first hour where I spend time going through all of the amazing work that was uploaded by our community the night before.
I have been assigned a number of the larger, more complicated shots to animate where giant monsters are fighting. I am also helping some of the less experienced animators in the team with their workflow and shots.
Had a terrific time at DreamWorks, where I was a part of a an amazing team. The Previz team at PDI lead by Kent Seki, Nol Meyer and Conan Low is truly raising the quality of Previz to ridiculous heights.
