My lifelong passion is to make films. In an effort to obtain the skills necessary to make such films I have branched out in to many different fields of art. I began studying theater in high school and I have acted in such plays as A Midsummer Nights Dream and Inspecting Carol. At the same time I was experimenting with video by making short films. Soon I began to focus more on the visual arts and began Studying Animation. After extensive training in traditional animation I began to focus on my fundamentals at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art. I studied figure drawing, painting and sculpture. After a few years of training I began working at High Street Studios on Fox and the Hound 2 as a layout artist and art coordinator. At the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art, I met Matthew Marchant. Matthew Marchant and I formed Aquamafia Productions and began to work on the Emperor of Tanganyika an epic children's story. I began to experiment with puppetry and animatronics at this point. Matthew Marchant, Christopher Ulrich and I formed CMD Productions and began working on "The Seed of the Garden" which was completed on July 2007. "The Seed of the Garden" is a children's story for children in re:mission. I will be finishing my education at LAFFA this fall in their full-time Atelier Program.
