I am an animator, who loves to infuse characters and objects of all sorts, with life and personality. I was born and raised in Port Washington, New York, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree, majoring in Graphic Arts, from Roger Williams University. After college, I started my dream of becoming an animator by attending Academy of Art University attending Master Studies in 3D Animation and also graduating from AnimationMentor, obtaining Advanced Animation Certification. Learning never ends, but I have been creating 3D animations for over 15 years on various productions, such as film, commercials, children’s programs and games.
When I’m not working, I am always with my wife and son. I am very much a kid at heart, love to play with my son, take the family traveling, or just sit at home playing games or watching movies.
I am extremely excited about VR/AR/MR technologies and the impact they will have on how people will view and interact with content. I believe that animations will play a huge part in making the most memorable moments for games and experiences; moments that the viewer won’t just see, but feel and live.
I did a fun interview with Eric Carlson at CG Chatter, which is a podcast that talks to people of various disciplines in the CG world. If you want to learn a little more about me personally and my career as an animator, grab some popcorn and check it out!
