Living on the West Coast of Canada for the past 6+ years, I've been able to combine my passion for animation and filmmaking with the inspiring nature that surrounds the area.
My debut short film 'Cat and Moth' finished it's festival circuit early 2023, and won several awards including the 'Jury's Special Award' at SIGGRAPHAsia, 'Best Animation" at MANIFF and the 'Shorties! Award' at Palm Springs Festival. Now that journey has come to an end, I have started work on my next projects.
When I'm not filmmaking, I am animating, and I am currently working at Walt Disney Animation Studios. I have worked for an array of studios including Sony Pictures Imageworks, Framestore, Superseed Studios and Studio AKA. During my 12+ years in the animation industry I have worked on a variety of projects from independent Shorts and Commercials, to Games and CG features. Projects include: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-verse, The Willoughby's, Crash Bandicoot: It's About Time, In Your Dreams, The Sea Beast, and of course, Cat and Moth.
