In 2000 I found myself co-writing, co-producing and directing my first film.  It was like getting bit by a bug.  Once I started scratching, I couldn’t stop.  The film went nowhere, but it didn’t matter.  I made a second.  That second film got me into the 3D software used in animation and special effects that is now at the heart of my work.

I consider myself a mad scientist as much as an artist, trying to meld my admiration of Impressionism with my passion for movies.

Whether the piece starts with macro photography, a story I love or a tree branch hanging on my backyard fence, I focus on the interaction of light, contrast, color and texture in a way that let’s my imagination run without getting too far from my story telling roots.  In any given piece, I hope to convey a mood or a sense of wonder and maybe tell a story that makes you smile.
