Summary

I have gained incredible industry level experience as a creative manager, at Legend 3D. While at this leading stereoscopic 3D conversion studio I climbed the ranks from Depth Artist to Depth Lead and on to Depth Supervisor. In charge of upwards to 60 artists at a time, I led the creative look for multiple feature films, commercials, broadcast, and trailers. I collaborated directly with VFX Supervisors, Compositing Supervisors, Production, and other Managers to achieve the creative vision that the client requested.

I have developed a pinpoint industry quality eye, a wickedly adaptable work style to fit various client and VFX Supervisor creative requests, and found an industry that I absolutely enjoy. An insanely strong work ethic, the ability to hit unreal deadlines, and a collaborative nature, I would be an easy fit to any VFX team.
