My self-summary
Recent transplant to VanCity.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I lived in San Francisco for a long time working on animated movies like Happy Feet and Madagascar (2 and 3). I spent last year living in a warehouse in North London, working on Guardians of the Galaxy. It was an amazing experience, but I wanted to be a little closer to home. So this year I moved to Vancouver, where I think I might stay for a while. It's always tough to tell where you will end up in my field, but so far I'm finding Van to be exceptionally easy city to feel at home in.

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.
I’m really good at
Making breakfast burritos

Making bourbon cocktails


Reaching things in high places

Drawing silly pictures

Chatting up just about anybody
The first things people usually notice about me
Obviously, my incredible charm. Or that I'm much chattier than they would like... (depending on their taste)

And then that I'm kind of tall.

Then sometime much later that all those dry chatty remarks were actually really hilarious jokes.

The six things I could never do without





Whiskey (ok I could live without it, but why would I when it's so delicious?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next vacation and what camera I want to take with me.

Also what shoes I'll bring on that vacation, because I take my packing seriously.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually doing some after work boozy bonding with my coworkers.

Biking somewhere to catch up with friends on the other side of town.

Plopping myself somewhere to watch a movie and unwind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a closet sports fan.

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 should message me if
You want to show me around or help me explore Vancouver.

You can be silly, take a joke, and have opinions.

Any of my jokes landed.
