Lighting, lookdev, and compositing for feature film:

I have created visual effects and CG imagery for an extensive number of animated features and live-action VFX over the span of 22 years. My current adventures have taken me to Redrover studios in South Korea where I have been Lighting Supervisor on the animated feature, "The Nut Job 2 (2017)". Other projects include "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)" and "Winter's Tale (2014)" with Framestore where I was lighting lead and lookdev lead. I also led a team of 12 artists as lighting lead on "Happy Feet Two" and "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs".

Early in my career, I was a VFX artist with a Houdini background, and so I crossed over into effects animation, i.e. "Surf's Up (2007)" and "The Chronicles of Narnia (2005)". I am technically skilled in the relevant VFX applications ranging from Maya, Nuke, Houdini, RenderMan, Arnold, Katana, and easily adapt to proprietary in-house software.
