Since 1989 I’ve been involved in some capacity in the ﬁlm and video business
through my work starting at Will Vinton Studios. Short ﬁlms and commercial work for top clients have developed my skills in sound design and composition as well as a high level of problem solving.
Work involved mechanical skills early on in the creation of armature and rigging utilized in the animation business. These skills were honed from my work as a jeweler and jewelry repair mechanic for 9 years.
Starting in 1990 I began to utilized and hone my sound design and music composition talents in the short ﬁlms and commercials being created at Will Vinton Studios.
This led to creating the sound design and music for Joan Gratz’s Academy Award winning short animated ﬁlm ”Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase.”
In July of 2000 I started work for Flying Rhinoceros as their sound designer/composer for the educational website fraboom .com.
From 2001 I’ve expanded my skill set to include video editing, production consulting,
Directing and After Effects Artist as well as color ﬂatting and clean up for graphics work And authoring ePub books using iBook Author.
I would like to utilize my skills in a creative and fun work environment. I’m very good at solving problems and coming up with solutions.
