For more than two decades, I have pursued a successful career in digital animation and fine arts, as a professor, animator, director/producer of animation films and commercial products. My experience includes college level instruction, course and curriculum development in the United States and abroad, and production and promotion of professional shows and festivals. My films have won awards in a number of such venues. I also provide consultation in animation, design and illustration for both academic and commercial applications. I have received my bachelors in fine arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and my masters of fine arts in experimental animation form the California Institute of the Arts. Currently artist in residency at the Hive Gallery in Los Angeles, where I continue to practice and promote my artwork along side other artists in the Los Angeles arts district.
