Born in Houston Texas on June 25th 1979 I had an interest in music and visual art from an early age. I started painting, drawing, sculpting and writing music while in grade school. After graduating high school in 1997 and attending art classes in Kingwood Texas, I then moved almost 200 miles away to Austin Texas. While attending art classes at ACC, I played guitar, sang and wrote songs in an indie rock band called "The Wheelworks." My band mates and I eventually parted after a few years of touring the big state of Texas. I then moved to Orlando, FL to attend The DAVE School (Digital Animation & Visual Effects). After completing an associates program at the DAVE School in 2005, I landed my first job in the CG industry at Wet Cement Productions. Since then I have been contributing to various CG projects for Rhythm and Hues, Disney and Nickelodeon among many others. In total I have 7 years of computer graphics experience.
