I have worked in the VFX industry for over 13 years and I currently reside in North Vancouver, BC with my wife Stephanie and daughters Hailey and Layla. Im originally from a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada. I studied 3D animation in Halifax, NS and started a small company that provided production and post production services for over 5 years. I started out as a generalist which does help knowing what each dept. is capable of or what to specifically ask for. I have worked as a creative director, character animator in 2D and 3D, 3D modeler/rendering/pipeline, graphic designer, photographer, editor, Di Artist and mainly my job in Compositing and Supervision. Onset Supervision has been particularly helpful, getting to watch over the entire process and help make better decisions on set to make it easier in post production.
Over the years I have developed a bit of an obsession with different cameras and lenses which thankfully has helped me a lot in my career. Knowing what a 21mm F2.8 multicoated lens does to your image compared to a single coated 85mm F1.4 or even a 2X anamorphic lens is quite useful as a compositor. On the side I do rent some of the unique gear that I have come across and you can find them at www.CreativeCameraRentals.com. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, riding motorcycles, traveling as much as I can, hitting the gym eating healthy, photography and playing music.
