Currently I'm on contract at Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) as a Digital Matte Painter, pretty much the dream job! I've had some terrific opportunities, including working with a fantastic team at Ubisoft in Montreal on the VES award winning cinematics for Prince of Persia 3. I've worked at Rocket Science vfx and Intelligent Creatures as a matte painter on feature films like Babel, Stranger Than Fiction, and The Number 23.
