I was born & raised in New Jersey. My interest in film & animation developed from hours of watching movies and listening to director commentaries. It was a time before YouTube and other readily available resources. An important commentary that almost single-handedly shaped my career aspirations was that from The Incredibles DVD. A special “Animator’s Commentary” was included in the special features. It was the first time I had the opportunity to listen to animators talk honestly about the challenges and successes of their work. Since then I’ve had an obsession with all things animated.
I attended RIT to study Film & Animation and later decided to pursue character animation through iAnimate feature animation workshops and AnimSquad expert workshops. I've animated on commercials with clients such as LEGO and M&M's. I'm currently working at MPC Montréal.
Outside of animation, I enjoy spending time with my dog, a 3 year old lab/terrier mix named Lucy. I set a goal of reading 52 books in 2018 and am currently on track to complete it. I also have aspirations to compete in my 1st powerlifting meet sometime in 2019 or early 2020.
