Although being very artistically curious as a kid, I initially pursued my passion for technology and completed a Bachelor's of Science degree in Computer Science/Engineering. I worked in various industries designing and building computer networks and servers, with some electrical engineering work thrown in as well for 15 years. Eventually my desire to reconnect with my inner artist led me to switch careers in 2003. I've been focusing on 3D animation, VFX, and motion graphics work ever since.
