About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Computer Animator
Location New York, New York, United States
Introduction I am a Junior Staff Animator at Blue Sky Studios, currently working on Rio 2. I also temped there on Ice Age 4 and Epic. What a fun place to work! Before that, I broke into feature by animating at Rhythm & Hues for Alvin & The Chipmunks 3, and at Sony for the Smurfs before that. I grew up in southern Rhode Island and went to school at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, graduating in 2003. I quickly got a job at Anzovin Studio in Northampton, MA, leaving after five years to enroll in Animation Mentor. I like to travel and have spent a lot of time kayaking in Florida, and driving to almost all of the states in the US, mostly for outdoorsy reasons.
