I'm an animator, an artist, a photographer, and an avid traveler. I've spent the last 10 years working on movies and video games in San Francisco, Los Angeles and London.
Originally a country kid from a small hippie town in Northern California, I've lived in London, Italy, Ireland, New York, LA and San Francisco, and have traveled to more than 30 countries. As much as I enjoy being home, and chilling out in the country, I really do love living in great cities and traveling to new places.
I've only been here a few months, so I'm still learning my way around. I am loving being able to get to know the city while cruising around on my (loaner) bicycle. I know I should probably start to check out places that aren't right by the seawall. But it sure is a nice way to get around.
Outside of work I play basketball, mouth off when I've had too many drinks while out with friends, practice (but generally butcher) Spanish, take pictures, draw pictures and explore.
Making bourbon cocktails
Reaching things in high places
Drawing silly pictures
Chatting up just about anybody
And then that I'm kind of tall.
Then sometime much later that all those dry chatty remarks were actually really hilarious jokes.

Whiskey (ok I could live without it, but why would I when it's so delicious?)
Also what shoes I'll bring on that vacation, because I take my packing seriously.
Biking somewhere to catch up with friends on the other side of town.
Plopping myself somewhere to watch a movie and unwind.
I know that's not that weird so it's not a big admission. But when you're from a small hippie town and you go to art school it becomes a privately guarded secret.
You can be silly, take a joke, and have opinions.
Any of my jokes landed.
