I graduated from Columbus College of Art & Design, Columbus Ohio, with a B.F.A. in 1987. I headed to Chicago where work as a storyboard artist for advertising agencies was in abundance. Clients included J. Walter Thompson, Leo Burnett, FCB, Kraft, Purina, General Motors, and many more. Seeking a respite from the brutal winters and non-stop work, I moved out to Laguna Niguel in 1990. After a few months on the beach, I landed a job at Warner Bros. TV Animation, which lasted 6 years. Although I didn't have any animation experience, I quickly took to the task as a character designer, developer, and storyboard artist. There I got to work with Steven Spielberg and many other amazing talents Two years after becoming a storyboard artist, I received my first Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Storyboarding. A year later I got a call from DreamWorks SKG, where I. I received my second Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Storyboarding. It was the first Emmy Award ever received on a project in the history of DreamWorks. Since then, I've worked with Warner Bros, Disney, Fox, Marvel, and Technicolor to name a few, both in animation and live action.
I also have experience as a fine artist, a gallery owner, and an illustrator. I look forward to bringing my years of abundant experience to LCAD.
