Currently I am doing freelance visual development for DreamWorks TV.


I just finished up a long gig at Warner Brothers in Burbank, doing key background paint on an undisclosed DC Superhero DTV film.  I also created background paintings for "Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge" prop and background design on "Scooby Doo meets Courage the Cowardly Dog" and BG work for various DC shorts.


Recent freelance clients include background layout for "Bless the Harts" on both seasons 1 and 2 for Fox.

On Saturdays I teach background painting at Laguna College of Art and Design.

I'm an art director, visual development artist and background designer with over 20 years of industry experience in a wide variety of animation productions, from broadcast television, commercials and web animation to DTV productions, feature films and feature title sequences. I have studio experience in 2D digital, 2D traditional and 3D production pipelines.

My specialties include art direction, concept design, environmental design, background layout, background painting, color keys, color scripts and color styling.


I am currently available for full time and freelance work.

Thanks for stopping by!
