Service Description

I create hand-drawn animation for films, TV, and the Internet. My goal is to create artistic work that thrills and entertains. I take great care to fashion animated worlds and characters that are beautifully conceived.

My studio is equipped to take your project from concept to storyboard to finished animation. I'm eager to be your creative partner.

I am passionate about every aspect animation - its history, traditional techniques, experimental techniques and styles that are fresh and vibrant, and connecting with an audience through sophisticated animated performances.

I've had experience animating for clients such as HBO, PBS, Scholastic, Weston Woods, and King Features Syndicate. Projects I've worked on have won an Emmy Award, the Carnegie Medal, an NAACP Image Award, been short-listed for an Oscar, and won prizes at many film festivals including the Ottawa International Animation Festival and the Heartland Film Festival.
