I specialize in pre-production visualization – previs, postvis, cinematography, and 3D concept modeling and look development. I love creating concept art and previs for pitching and presenting everything from quick sketches to whole sequences. Experienced in cinematic language, techniques, and design, my goal is to find creative ways to help and enhance the storytelling and visual impact of each project.
Over the last 13 years in the industry, I have developed a diverse skill set working on feature film and television projects. This includes prior production experience in animation, compositing, modeling, matte painting, environment work, tracking, FX, and render management. It helps me communicate effectively with other departments, stay flexible, and propose of a variety of solutions to production needs.

War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)
Halon Demo Reel
Using the Unreal Engine and Maya to create visually striking previs, our Halon team on set in Vancouver worked in tandem with Halon’s head studio in L.A. to create over 40 mins of previs for the final film. This was a true team effort – no shots were executed from start to finish by one artist, but rather our whole team worked seamlessly together to efficiently get the most out of each sequence.
Environments/Matte Painting Reel (2014)
A collection of some personal work, from 2D/3D paintings composited over footage I shot, to 3D set extensions, and full 3D environments. Software used includes Maya, After Effects, Photoshop, and Nuke.
