I am an animation Industry professional with 21 years of animation industry experience, both in film, and in video games.

I started in the industry immediately after college, where I was hired as Assistant Director on "Katie and Orbie", a cute pre-school series produced by Lacewood Productions. Since then, I have done every job imaginable in the animated film industry - Assistant Animator, Animator, Layout Artist, Storyboard Artist, Sheet Director (providing animation direction to service studios overseas), Overseas Supervisor, Director, and Creative Director, on both TV series and Feature Films.

It was the Montréal industry that really boosted my career. Having moved here to work for Michael Mills Productions, making commercials under Oscar-award-winning Michael Mills, I found myself a couple years later at CinéGroupe, and they gave me a lot of opportunity for advancement. I quickly moved up the ladder to eventually direct 3 series, and a feature-ette.

Upon the crash of the animated film industry here in Montreal, in 2004, I moved on to video games in order to a) work, and b) learn the 3D side of the business. I did artistic direction for High-Rez Cinematics, as well as gameplay animation direction. Most notably, I directed Prince of Persia - The Two Thrones, nominated for "outstanding achievement in animation" at the 9th annual interactive achievement awards.
