I've been an artist all of my life--starting with a correspondence course from Art Instruction Schools, then continuing to learn on my own. First drawing, painting,sculpture, then airbrush illustration before getting my first computer and being introduced to digital art, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and animation.
I was a Designer and Creative Director at SMP Instore Marketing solutions for 15 years. I developed award winning displays for Jelly Belly Candy, Mizuno USA, Keebler, Lance, Sanford Uniball, Anheuser-Busch, Frito-Lay and Pepsico, to name a few.
I've been creating computer animation as Zandoria Studios™* using Animation:Master software since 1999. I am well known on the A:M forums, part of a group of expert users that Martin Hash (the creator of the software) affectionately calls the "Hash Fellows".
In 2004 I used A:M to create visual effects for Bryan Michael Stoller's film "Miss Cast Away and the Island Girls". I'm currently developing an animated series called "TAR of Zandoria" about a hippopotamus barbarian in search of adventure, dancing girls and fruit punch!
Now I work as a Freelance Designer, creating photorealistic designs and animations for Marketing Agencies, Startups and Entrepreneurs to use as selling tools, for concept testing, or for fundraising. I also design objects for 3D printing as products or prototypes. I can help you bring your dream to life!
