About

Thank you for visiting my website. I'm a creative person living in Los Angeles with my wife, two kids, and a Goldendoodle named Rooney (after the principal from Ferris Bueller's Day off). Hopefully, this website gives you a good idea of my experience and how I spend my time.

As an overview, I went to undergrad for Economics and Models and Data (math modeling), worked in finance for a year, then went to grad school in Los Angeles for film, television, and interactive.

After grad school, I spent a couple of years in feature development, then went on to produce commercials, live-action, and vfx/post-production. I've been working in that field for a while now as well as working on personal projects and assorted projects for clients.

Other than work, I spend most of my time with my family and enjoy them more than I could have ever imagined.
