info​​

Motion capture animator with 19 years of experience in a full post production pipeline and Unreal Generalist with focus on motion.

 Through out this time I have enhanced my abilities in quality control, leadership, multi-tasking and time management.  Combined with my work as a 3-D artist, I provide a dual perspective of comprehension for both project requirements and creative input.
