I’m a freelance storyboard artist for animated movies, hybrid films, animated series and games. I’m currently based in Ontario, Canada.
I was in NY at Blue Sky Studios as Head of Story for the production of Ferdinand (2017), which earned both an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Animated Feature in 2018.
While at Blue Sky Studios, I also taught at the School of Visual Arts MFA Computer Arts Department in Manhattan, where I specialized in ‘Narrative & Visual Storytelling’ and ‘Digital Storyboarding’. I am still an active thesis advisor for SVA, and I taught ‘Creative Structure’ part-time at Sheridan College for a semester. I feel fulfilled when I am mentored, can learn from my co-workers and in turn, mentor others and enable new voices.
I’m currently pivoting to a position as VP of Creative Client Services at House of Cool, a Toronto collective that specializes in high-end pre-production for clients worldwide.
