I grew up near Asbury Park, NJ (A seaside ghost town full of crumbling boardwalks and abandoned amusement parks). I studied film at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where I was attracted to animation because of the freedom it allowed in storytelling, especially under the constraints of film school. After struggling to find steady work as a stop motion animator, I stumbled into visual effects, and realized I was making it even easier to tell stories the way I wanted to tell them.
