    Summary:
    I am currently working at PDI/Dreamworks Animation as a lead final layout artist supporting multiple downstream departments including animation and lighting. I am responsible for managing a small team of artists in the US and India. The work is multi-disciplinary and encompasses camera work, animation, stereography, layout, set dressing, technical debugging, and scripting to aid in greater workflow efficiencies. In 2010, I spent three months in India training and supporting the overseas final layout team. This was an incredible experience and provided me with an opportunity to work within a diverse culture and help manage a small and upcoming team of artists. I am also the founder of Live Music Visuals which focuses on creating real-time music visualizations for musical performances. Collaborations include the Redwood Symphony Orchestra, percussion ensembles, "Drums Downtown," SIGGRAPH 2009 in New Orleans, and many other up and coming artists. The goal of my work is to create real-time 3D animated visuals that respond to live performances and help connect audiences with a performance. In addition to the performance based visualizations, I am also working with an app development team to bring these creations to the smartphone market. This work encompasses multiple disciplines and intricacies associated with 3D software packages and game engines. I am also an avid music composer specializing in orchestral, instrumental, and soundtrack genres. My first album, released in 2011, was entitled "Midnight Christmas". Specialties: Music composition, audio editing and mastering, visual effects, animation, modeling, texturing, lighting, artistic direction and conceptualization, programming (CSS, HTML, Javascript, MEL, Python), interface design, game development, Unity3D, Unreal engine, shader coding, Max MSP, audio analysis, pre-visualization, layout, stereography, video editing, compositing, website creation, Adobe software suite, and cross-site team management.
