For as long as I can remember, I wanted to make things move. I discovered a passion for film making and animation at a very young age. By the time I graduated high school, I was creating short animations that won me national awards and had my sights squarely set on animating on feature films. The wait was short; two years into college I was recruited by Rhythm and Hues studios as a character animator. A year later, I was at Weta Digital working on Peter Jackson's "King Kong" where I met my wife. I started Arconyx, LLC, a boutique animation and vfx company in LA. Over a hundred projects, two kids, and 10 years later, I decided to add game development to my repertoire. It was the best decision I ever made; now complete on "I, Hope", my award-winning 3D adventure for children battling cancer and 100% of proceeds going to charity, I have met the most amazing and inspiring people on the planet.
I don't know what the future holds, but I do know that whatever it is, I'm going to keep on making things move.
