I started my animation career in New York City in 1991.

While in NY, I worked at various studios, doing mainly TV animation.

In 1996, fed up with the cold (we had record amounts of snow and ice that year), I moved out to California to join the animation boom - and warm up!


Here's a compilation of the work I've done.  I broke them up into 3 groups:

Film, Games and TV.
