I grew up in Michigan, went to college in Chicago, and now I live in Los Angeles. Ever since I was a child, my time has been spent immersed in all
the pop culture I could get hold of. Books, comics, cartoons, movies, art,
video games, computers, commercials, television, sculpting, photography, music. You name it, I've probably dabbled in it and could do professional quality work.
After graduating from Loyola University Chicago with a major in
Audio/Visual Production and a minor in Graphic Design, I moved to Los Angeles. Since moving here, I've interned at many places including
Emerging Entertainment as a Production Assistant on a major film documentary, Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment as a Graphic Designer and Writing Intern, Almost Human FX as a Shop Assistant Intern, and most recently at Starburns Industries in the Puppet Fabrication department.
I've expanded my sculpting and fabrication abilities into SFX Makeup and Practical FX, and after working on several Channel 101 shows and web
shorts, I have built up a pretty decent reel. Recently, I've become more involved in Channel 101 as co-producer, chief of marketing and design.
Thanks to an interest in film and computer graphics that began in childhood and my studies at Loyola, I'm also experienced in the Adobe Creative Suite
as well as Final Cut Pro, ProTools, free hand drawing, design, layout, and illustration. My specialties also include: Sculpting, molding/casting, concept art, sfx makeup, practical fx, and prop creation.
