The Art School in Switzerland said, my style is too extreme and rejected my application. Therefore, I came to Los Angeles to pursue my dream of being an Animator. After graduating Film School at LACC with an AA degree, drawing classes at the Animation Institute and some classes in 3D Animation, I landed at Klasky Csupo who introduced me to the world of 3d/2d Animation. I learned to model, toonshade, light, render, etc.  At Warner Brothers, I picked up how to do fx animation. Eight years at DreamWorks Animation as a modeler and a magical time at Disney Feature Animation as an Environment Modeler trained me to be a skilled modeler.  After an exciting transition to live action previs modeling at Proof Inc, I recently was making proxy models for the Angry Birds movie, delivering previs shots and doing Visual Development on Angry Birds 2 and the Ark and the Aardvark. Currently, I am back making previs assets in the Virtual Production department at Digital Domain. Always learning new skills. It will be curious what is next… stay tuned!
