I'm obsessed with making things and even more obsessed with making things better. I've never been satisfied with good or average. When I commit to something, I give it my all. I am currently a Junior Compositor at Savage Visual Effects in Pittsburgh, PA. I work on feature films and television shows everyday, I love it. This has required me to become a bit more specialized with my craft, but I enjoy learning and experimenting with all different types of media. I recently started a challenge project where I work on different skills and styles not only to create something but to also broaden my artistic horizon. I never want to stop growing as an artist.
Compositing is a passion of mine. Creating the illusion that something is real when it is not, is far from a few clicks on the computer. It is a constant challenge, especially with the resolution and detail continuing to grow larger and larger. I love learning new techniques, applications, and workflows. You never know when it may come in handy, especially when faced with a problem with no easy solutions. My interests, however, extend beyond that of animation and video. I also want to develop my skills as a designer and photographer to better compliment my skill set and eye.
When I'm not compositing, animating, or designing. I'm probably spending time with my family and friends. I love to sit down and watch an NHL game and to get out out on the ice myself and play too. Since I spend a majority of my time in a chair on a computer, I make an effort to get to the gym a few days each week to blow off some steam. Its also an incredible challenge with great benefits.
