     I attended the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio from 1991-1993 and was hired at Disney Feature Animation in 1994.  I began my career as a clean-up animator on "Pocahontas", and after three years in clean-up, moved into the layout department.  In 2004, I was hired as an Art Director at Sony Pictures Animation on "Open Season".

     In 2006 I moved back to Disney and worked as an Art Director and Visual Development artist on many films.  My first children's book, BUG ZOO was published in 2016.  I currently work as a visual development artist at Sony Pictures Animation.
